About this item

Adolf Hitler did not have children, but what of the families of Hermann Goring, Heinrich Himmler and Hans Frank, to name a few? What is it like for the descendants of these top Nazi officials to deal with the legacy left behind by their notorious families? "Hitler's Children" introduces us to the children, grandchildren and nieces and nephews of these infamous men. Among them Niklas Frank, son of Hans Frank and godson of Hitler, who despises his father's past so much that he has spent his entire adult life researching and writing negatively about him, often touring around Germany to lecture against his father and the Nazi regime. And Bettina Goring, the great-niece of Hitler's second in command, Hermann Goring, who lives in voluntary exile in Santa Fe, NM and together with her brother decided to get sterilized so as to not pass on the Goring name or blood. These, and many others, discuss how they have coped with the fact that their last name alone immediately raises images of murder and genocide; and how they have reached a balance between the natural admiration and affection children feel towards their parents, and their innate revulsion of their crimes. Some have been more successful than others at achieving that balance, but each bares, for the first time, the scars that their legacy has left them.

Bonus Short Film: "Kun 65".

Languages: German, English and Hebrew, Subtitles: English.

Customer review by Henry1946

4.0 stars by Henry1946

Amazing perspectives and turbulent feelings from the descendants of World War II war criminals make this movie a must-see. Normally movies about people seeking closure about the holocaust are from the Jewish perspective, however hearing the descendants of the monsters themselves talk about how their ancestors' dark pasts have shaped their whole lives is no less emotionally potent, and much less talked about. It did seem a bit like some of the interviews covered the same ground, but they are different enough to act as variations of each other, adding new ideas to the mix. The sections with Rainer Hoess were especially revealing, and his encounter with an Israeli tour group at Auschwitz is incredible.
