Storyline

When Arnon Goldfinger grandmother died in Tel Aviv, his whole family came around for the necessary disposition of her property. While dealing with all the stuff, Arnon made an shocking discovery: evidence that his German Jewish grandparents had a friendship with the senior Nazi SS officer, Leopold von Mildenstein, before and after World War II. His repulsion and confusion at how his beloved grandparents could have done that sends Arnon on an international search for the truth. In doing so, Arnon learns about a complex relationship where family, sentiment, history and human nature can combine to produce a kind of denial in reaction to the worst of reality.

A very riveting movie
1 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I never understood was how the holocaust could have happened in a country that had excelled in philosophic thoughts, music and literature. I have seen many films related to the holocaust. I have even visited Auschwitz. I never thought I would see a film like this on the subject. The film was very sensitively produced and seemed very honest to the content. What is fascinating is that the characters were all real. Like a documentary. Yet the film had a story that flowed. I would certainly see it again to fill the gaps that I may have missed. What I would also like to find out is the reaction to this film in Israel and Germany.
