Hitler's Children 2011

Product Details     Adolph Hitler did not have any children, this documentary looks at the descendents of five of the top Nazi officials working for Hitler.  None of these relatives have any Nazi leanings and they talk individually about carrying a name associated with the Nazi Party.  Even just being a German has been associated with Nazi history but their family names have been written in history.
     This is very interesting, many movies have been made about this period but this film has a different viewpoint.  It’s about the burden passed on to the future generation.  Each of the five people have handled their legacy in a different manner.  There are discussions of evil, guilt, memory, denial, heredity and repentance.  What they drew on to form their own identities and how they have chosen to live their lives with this heritage.  3 ½* (I liked this movie)

59 min Doc directed by Chanoch Zeevi with Bettina Goering, Katrin Himmler, Rainer Hoess, Eldad Beck, Niklas Frank, Monika Goeth.

Note:  imdb 7.3 out of 10, 80% critic 64% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
