Storyline

Family drama and historical truth collide in this film about the painful legacy cast by Hanns Ludin, a prominent Nazi executed for war crimes in 1947. In this documentary, Hanns Ludin's son, filmmaker Malte Ludin, breaks 60 years of silence and repression, investigating his father's dark deeds and interviewing his still-denying sisters. The film is an intimate look at the descendants of a Nazi perpetrator, most of whom refuse to accept the history of their family and of Nazi Germany more generally. Written by National Center for Jewish Film

remembering German family past. revealing
14 December 2005 | by (berlin, germany) – See all my reviews

after all the chatter about third generation this, third generation that finally a movie that shows how German families dealt with the Nazis they had as parents grandparents etc. the filmmaker shows how his older sisters react as he confronts them again with the facts the actually already knew but tried almost successfully to forget about their dad, who was the German military ambassador in Bratislava. and was involved in thousands of deportation orders, thus deliberately killing thousands of mainly Jews of Slovakia. i was a bit disappointed as i expected to be the case of Ludin's grandfather to be less clear. and found him as simple a murderer as most middle-high-ranking Nazis were. but that just meant i didn't find the movie to be what i expected it to be. the movie does, however, show how much Germans tend to mantle the Nazis in their family by stressing the loving relative (here:father) in them. (whoa: sorry, my unsatisfactory English stroked again). Especially some statements of the oldest sister ("Jews were killed in anti-partisan actions") are simply as wrong as disgusting as revealing for the German present. one deep and great advantage of this movie is that the filmmaker always manages to leave these statements not uncommented, while still continuing the interview and the movie. i don't know why nobody commented on this movie until now, because i think it's one of the best movies about Germans and their view of the Shoah. and i think the German view is pretty frightening.
