A NAZI LEGACY: WHAT OUR FATHERS DID

TFF 2015 Directed by David Evans
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE A NAZI LEGACY: WHAT OUR FATHERS DID [TFF 2015]
Can you imagine what it means to grow up as the child of a mass murderer? Hans Frank and Otto von Wächter were indicted as war criminals for their roles in WWII. Nazi Governors and consultants to Hitler himself, the two are collectively responsible for thousands of deaths. But what stood out to Philippe Sands were the impressions they left on their sons. While researching the Nuremberg trials, the human rights lawyer came across two men who re-focused his studies: Niklas Frank and Horst von Wächter. The men hold polar opposite views on the men who raised them.

Through a series of unadulterated conversations with Frank and von Wächter, Sands and director David Evans strip away at titles and ranks to explore the character lying underneath the infamous criminals, their patriarchal influence, and the price of forgiveness. A unique look on the father/son relationship, A Nazi Legacy: What Our Fathers Did brings new meaning to the ties that bind us.
