Storyline

Back to Berlin is the first biker flick-meets-holocaust feature documentary. Eleven motor bikers have a mission to take the Maccabiah torch from Israel to the site of the infamous 1936 Berlin Olympics, for the first Jewish Olympic Games on German soil. They will retrace the heroic journeys of the original 1930s' Maccabiah riders and discover how they or their families survived the Holocaust.

Quotes

Maximillian Marco Katz: Other Jews were taken to the centre of Bucharest to a slaughter house, And 15 of them they were killed there in the same manner. They were shot and then they were hanged. They were hoocked up and on their naked bodies there was written Kosher Meat.

Elite Modern Day Historical Doc
29 March 2019 | by TheAll-SeeingISee all my reviews

Highly contemplative and well-executed doc revolving around the 2015 Maccabiah Games, apparently referred to in more common vernacular as the "Jewish Olympics," and held where we commonly see footage of Jesse Owens' dominating in Berlin as Hitler sulked in hate-driven disgust.

This film is not relegated to mere celebration, however, as the Maccabiah Games, we learn, have arisen from a continued modern-day emergence of the same hate that gave us Hitler.

Extremely well-conceived - it's sombering and triumphant - this is a modern historical doc that can't be missed, as it spotlights the dark forces at work within the human condition, and provides a persevering means by which to defeat them.
