Germans & Jews (2016)

Through personal stories, Germans & Jews, a critically-acclaimed 2016 documentary film, explores Germany’s changing narrative of the Holocaust and its transformation since the end of World War II.

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 & Jews is at once uncomfortable and provocative, unexpected and enlightening.

We will hold a discussion after the 80-minute film. ALL WELCOME!
