2015 Holocaust Film Series
Jewish Community Campus Social Hall
5801 West 115th Street
Overland Park, Kansas
Family drama and historical truth collide in this film about the painful legacy cast by Hanns Ludin, a prominent Nazi executed in 1947 for war crimes. In this astonishing 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 refused to accept the history of their family and of Nazi Germany more generally. (Running time: 89 minutes – German with English subtitles)
This event is open to the public at no charge, but reservations are encouraged.
