The Commandant's Shadow Synopsis

The true story that inspired the Oscar-winning The Zone of Interest, The Commandant's Shadow tells how, eight decades after Auschwitz, Hans Jurgen Höss and Anita Lasker Wallfisch - both survivors in their very different ways - come face to face, together with their children, to explore how the Holocaust has impacted all their lives. It's a historic moment, the first time the descendant of a major war criminal meets a survivor in such a private and intimate setting. Told through firsthand testimony, letters, personal and historical archive footage, this feature-length documentary is about a mother and daughter, a father and son, and the shadow cast down the generations. Raising questions about love, guilt and forgiveness, it is also a story of hope, acceptance and compassion.
