Germans and Jews
Directors: Janina Quint & Tai Recanati • Israel • 2015 • Hebrew with English subtitles
Through personal stories and witnesses, the documentary explores Germany’s transformation from silence about the Holocaust to facing it head on. What began as a private conversation between the two filmmakers and friends grew into a cultural exchange among many. The often uneasy and conflicted conversations among individuals, inextricably linked by the memory of the Holocaust, reveal both an obsession with the past and a desire to move forward.
