Foreign Film Series: Hitler's Children
March 27, 2014 from 7:30 p.m.
Hitler had no children, but what about Goering, Himmler, Hoess, and Frank? Hitler’s Children introduces us to the descendants of these infamous men. Niklas Frank, son of Hans Frank and godson of Hitler, has spent his adult life speaking out against his father and the Nazi regime. Bettina Goering, grandniece of Hitler’s second in command, Herman Goering, lives in voluntary exile in Santa Fe. These and many others, discuss how they have coped with the fact that their last names are equated with terror and genocide. They discuss the delicate balance they have reached as they negotiate between the natural admiration that children have toward their parents and their innate revulsion of their parents’ crimes.
The film shows at 7:30 and 9:45 p.m.
