My Nazi Legacy

Sutton for Peace and Justice invite you to a screening of  ‘My Nazi Legacy – What our fathers did’.

Friday June 24th, 7.30–9.00pm, doors open at 7.00, at Sutton Quaker Meeting Hall, Cedar Road, Sutton, SM2 5DA.

A poignant and thought-provoking documentary film, scripted by Philippe Sands, examining the long shadow of Nazi atrocities, friendship and inherited guilt.

Eminent human rights lawyer Philippe Sands takes two men, each of whom are the children of very high-ranking Nazi officials, on an emotional journey through Europe, examining the past and the sins of their fathers.  Every member of Philippe Sands’ family living in an area of Ukraine under their control were slaughtered in 1941.

The two men approach the Nazi past of their fathers from totally different perspectives.  Whilst one has come to terms with what his father did, the other is still in denial – wriggling, squirming, trying to claim that his father was not personally guilty.

Director – David Evans.  Screenwriter – Philippe Sands.
With Philippe Sands, Niklas Frank, Horst von Wächter.
UK 2015.

  • ‘Outstanding documentary about history and guilt from author and human rights lawyer Philippe Sands’. The Guardian.
  • ‘A welcome attempt to confront the Nazi era with a steady eye.’  The Telegraph.
  • ‘Three men bound by the terrible crimes of the Nazis have forged an incredible bond between them that is explored in a moving new film’.  DailyMail.
