A Jew Among the Germans

In this bracingly vitriolic documentary produced for PBS, former Chicagoan Marian Marzynski observes planning for the Monument to the Murdered Jews of Europe (which opened this month in Berlin) and interviews architect Peter Eisenman, historian James Young, and members of the so-called “third generation” who wrote a book about the legacy of World War II atrocities. A Jew who escaped the Warsaw ghetto by passing as Catholic, Marzynski calls Germany “the land of the enemy” and wonders in a voice-over if “the word German will always be associated with the word murderer.” An overzealous security guard who grabs his camera at the building site is a “Nazi,” and the German people are urged to “live in the permanent state of guilt, good guilt, if such a thing exists.” 60 min.
