Director: Chanoch Ze'evi (80 minutes, Israel/Germany, 2012) German, English and Hebrew with English subtitles / Documentary
Linked by bloodlines to the perpetrators of the worst crimes in history, heirs to the Nazi High Command come to grips with the genocidal legacy of their fathers, uncles and grandfathers. Through a series of emotionally raw interviews, close family members of Nazi masterminds Adolf Eichmann, Hermann Göring, Heinrich Himmler and others struggle to reconcile their monstrous ancestry with the unconditional love of children toward their parents. The director facilitates the intimate, cathartic dialogue with the Nazi progeny, some of whom meet face-to-face with Holocaust descendants in powerful moments of reconciliation.
