"...Multimedia programmers love bright colors, but the team of Belgian designers that created "Lest We Forget: A History of the Holocaust" (Logos, $59.95) chose a stark, steel-gray palette that was perfect for their chilling subject. Instead of unfolding in discreet windows, "Lest We Forget" builds collages of images that make disturbing contrasts between Nazis and their victims. Finally, the soundtrack itself becomes a collage of conflicting sounds. The result: We feel the fear, the hatred, the danger and the sorrow of the Holocaust."
