In 2008, British filmmaker Luke Holland began interviewing Germans and Austrians who were former members of the Nazi party and the SS too. More than ten years later, he created the documentary Final Account, composed of a selection from the more than 250 interviews he had conducted. The son of a Jewish refugee from Vienna and a descendant of Jews killed by the Nazis, Holland struggled with the question of how and why ordinary people actively supported a regime that committed genocide. Final Account was his final film; sadly, Holland passed away in June 2020.
This program will include 5 clips from the film followed by moderated conversations centered on who is responsible for evil and who is a perpetrator.
