25th Boston Jewish Film Festival - Generation War
November 14, 2013
Not since the historic broadcasting of the 1978 American miniseries HOLOCAUST has Germany been so riveted to a television series about the Nazi horrors. GENERATION WAR is presented from the unusual viewpoint of the Germans themselves. This is the extraordinary first chapter of the miniseries, about five German friends from 1939-1945, some brave and some cowardly, some embracing the Nazi ideology, and one who is Jewish. A bracing piece of political art.
