  • Arthur Lederman is 100 years old. Before World War II, he was a renowned concert violinist in his native Poland. In 1938, he escaped via steamship to New York City and was the only member of his family to survive the Holocaust. Christoph Erbsloeh is a 20-year-old German cellist whose grandfather served in Hitler's army. But when a Jewish aid agency sends the young exchange student to help the elderly recluse, Arthur and Christoph both begin to confront the legacy of Nazi Germany in ways neither had ever imagined. Susan Sarandon narrates this award-winning HBO documentary about the unlikely friendship between two men born 80 years apart whose histories of anger and suspicion develop into an uncommon bond of reconciliation and respect. This is FACING ARTHUR.
