Movie Info

Today, Europe's fastest growing Jewish population is in Berlin. Germany is considered one of the most democratic societies in the world, assuming the position of moral leader of Europe as they embrace hundreds of thousands of refugees. This development couldn't have been imagined in 1945. Through personal stories Germans & Jews explores Germany's transformation as a society, from silence about the Holocaust to facing it head on. Unexpectedly, a nuanced story of reconciliation emerges. What began as a private conversation between the two filmmakers and friends, Tal Recanati (Jewish) and Janina Quint (non-Jewish German), grew into a cultural exchange among many and we realize that the two people are inextricably linked through the memory of the Holocaust. Germans and Jews is at once uncomfortable and provocative, unexpected and enlightening.

Don't expect simple answers in "Germans & Jews." Just prepare for formidable questions. Those are the real reasons to see this incisive documentary.

For a film encompassing generations of fraught history, Germans & Jews is awfully short, but hardly superficial.

In its short running time, the film speaks volumes about the human capacity for understanding, empathy and hope.

Aug 3, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It proves a level-headed, borderline-detached stab at understanding how Germans, and by extension Germany as a whole, dealt with a still-fresh history of mass extermination and attempted world conquest.
