Chicago premiere!

  1. 2011, Chanoch Ze’evi, Germany/Israel, 80 min.

“Quiet, simple and soaked in sorrow, HITLER’S CHILDREN takes a stripped-down approach to an emotionally sophisticated subject.”
—Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

“Odd, intriguing, and ultimately moving...Helmer Ze'evi does a masterful job.”
—John Anderson, Variety

This riveting documentary deals with five individuals who did not participate in Nazi atrocities but nevertheless bear the guilt: the children, grandchildren, and other descendants of such infamous mass murderers as Goering, Himmler, Frank, Hoess, and Goeth. Baring their souls in remarkably candid interviews, they respond to their hideous heritage in varied ways--including seclusion, sterilization, and tireless public renunciation--but, without exception, they prove to have compelling personalities, forged, no doubt, by the extraordinary burden they deal with on a daily basis. The emotional intensity of the film is at times shattering, as when the daughter of Amon Goeth recalls watching SCHINDLER’S LIST for the first time, or when the grandson of Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoess encounters a group of Jewish schoolchildren while visiting the camp. In German, English, and Hebrew with English subtitles. DCP video. (MR)
