Hitler's Children

Underwritten by Nikki and Nati Zommer



Hitler's Children
Synopsis

Descendants of some of the most prominent and cruelest Nazis do exist. While many of them understandably seek anonymity, a few do not. A German-speaking Israeli interviews the descendants of Hermann Göring, Heinrich Himmler, Hans Frank, and Rudolf Höss (commandant of Auschwitz-Birkenau). The film provides an unusual exploration of the varying degrees to which these descendants have reconciled familial obligations with the evil committed by family members who preceded them.
