This documentary examines the history of Germany’s postwar Jewish population and the fraught and fragile relationships between Jews and non-Jews. Middle-aged Germans who grew up largely ignorant of the Hitler era discuss key moments that awakened them to the nightmare of Germany’s past and of the culpability of family members. Told entirely through interviews at a dinner party attended by Germans and Jews, the film negotiates sensitive questions of memory, guilt, identity and redemption.
