The Commandant’s Shadow

Dir: Daniela Volker
103mins   2024   US   12A   English | German   

While Hans Jurgen Höss enjoyed a happy childhood in the family villa at Auschwitz, Jewish prisoner Anita Lasker-Wallfisch was trying to survive the notorious concentration camp.

At the heart of this film is the historic and inspiring moment – eight decades later – when the two come face-to-face.

This is the first time the descendant of a major war criminal meets a survivor in such a private and intimate setting, Anita's London living room.

Together with their children, Kai Höss and Maya Lasker-Wallfisch, the four protagonists explore their very different hereditary burdens.
