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

Good is passive Evil is never satisfied
2 April 2019 | by The_Boxing_CatSee all my reviews

To condemn those for their father's sins would be to deny them of their right to think freely, just as their father denied the Jews.

ON THE OTHER HAND, for those who PRETENDED that their father knew nothing of what was done to the Jewish peoples is borderline Nazism.

Their father cared nothing for his children, otherwise he would have not left them with such a legacy. How can one be a good father when he has no regard for the human race... not just his race?

At least his grandchildren can see exactly what a monster he was. It must have given them a sense of freedom from his evilness.

I was happy to see that the filmmaker didn't let his sister off the hot seat.

My only criticism is that the music was terrible. It felt as though it didn't fit with the subject matter.
