CineMingle: The Unknown Soldier
Germany, 2007, 97min, German (English Subtitles) Director Michael Verhoeven
Michael Verhoeven tackles head on the comforting myth that ordinary German soldiers were ignorant of the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime. The film explores the heated controversy that followed a 1997 Munich exhibition which attacked the notion that the SS was exclusively responsible for the extermination of millions.
The thoroughness with which The Unknown Soldier expunges the last traces of innocence from the citizens of the Third Reich may inspire some sympathy for those who came after. A.O. Scott, New York Times
Co-Presented by the Berlin and Beyond Film Festival, January 10-16, 2008 and the Holocaust Center of Northern California.
