This thoughtful documentary examines the complicated relationship between Germans and Jews in modern Germany. Structured around a contemporary dinner party attended by Germans and Jews, some of whom were born in Germany andsome who are “Germans by choice.” Curious questions arise that many Americans have never considered. What was life like for Jews growing up in East Germany? How does Germany’s growing Muslim community respond to the Holocaust education that is an essential part of the school curriculum? This sensitive film gives us access to many sides of a crucial historical dialogue. “A thoughtful and illuminating examination of a provocative subject.” Hollywood Reporter.
