Description

Director Roberta Grossman (Who Will Write Our History; Hava Nagila: The Movie) recounts the untold story behind the Luxembourg Agreements of 1952 that paved the way for compensation to Holocaust survivors. Under the threat of violence, German and Jewish leaders met in a hidden castle near the Hague to secure an acknowledgment of the genocide and advance the reparations proposal as the first step towards healing. This engrossing film brings these moments to life with dramatized scenes and interviews with historians as well as Ben Ferencz, the one surviving participant from these historic talks, who had previously served as prosecutor at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials.
