What: Seminar on the Holocaust

When: Sunday, January 30, from 21:00

Where: Online

More: In early 1979, after more than 30 years of collective repression, a dramatic and emotional American TV mini-series broadcast in German living rooms suddenly reminded the German population of the terrible Nazi crimes against the Jews. This was the first time that a major mainstream drama depicted the lives of Hitler's victims. The unexpected echoes and the reaction of the audience were fierce. Even before the TV broadcast, neo-Nazis bombed transmission towers in Germany in vain to interfere with the broadcast. The series caused heated discussions in many families about the responsibility of parents and grandparents in the era of Nazism. The film explores questions, feelings and effects that still play an important role.

From creation and filming during the broadcast to the wild reactions, award-winning documentary filmmaker Alice Agneskirchner tells the story of this emotional television event that led to a paradigm shift in the perception of the crimes of German Nazism.

Cost: $ 12
