UK Jewish Film Festival 2022 – Edinburgh – Reckonings – 8pm

November 16

UK JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL IN EDINBURGH – RECKONINGS

Director  Roberta Grossman   Country  USA   Year   2022  Duration  72 mins

Nominated for Best Documentary Award

No sum of money or abundance of goods could ever atone for the unspeakable suffering and loss inflicted by Nazi Germany on European Jews. And yet, with Holocaust survivors and the young Israeli state in urgent need of funds to rebuild lives and the new West German regime desperate to re-join the family of nations, both sides agreed in the early 1950s to a series of secret meetings in which a compensation deal would be negotiated. Marking the 70th anniversary of the ground-breaking Luxembourg Agreements, award-wining filmmaker Roberta Grossman’s (Who Will Write Our History) riveting documentary sheds new light on one of the most controversially ethical and moral issues Jewish leaders ever had to grapple with, and the far-reaching implications their decision had on both Germans and Jews.
