Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 - post-screening Q&A with Sam Pope, the film's editor.

A stunning documentary made by the late Luke Holland, a local Ditchling resident, featuring ground-breaking interviews with the last generation of everyday people who lived and participated in Adolf Hitler's Third Reich.

Over a decade in the making, the film raises vital, timely questions about authority, conformity, complicity and perpetration, national identity, and responsibility, as men and women ranging from former SS members to civilians in never-before-seen interviews reckon with -- in very different ways -- their memories, perceptions and personal appraisals of their own roles in the greatest human crimes in history.
