A Jew Among the Germans

A Jew Among the Germans
May. 31, 2005
60 minutes

As a young boy Marian Marzynski survived the Holocaust in Poland. But his father and most of his relatives did not. In "A Jew Among the Germans" Marzynski sets out on a personal quest to find out how Germans are going to design a memorial to the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust. It will be unveiled this May on the sixtieth anniversary of the end of World War II. Over three years he encounters artists architects and planners who struggle with the big questions of guilt responsibility and memory. He struggles to reconcile his own relationship to the German people and meets a young "third generation" of Germans who declare their distance from their parents and grandparents and how earlier generations have dealt with the Holocaust.

Producer(s): Marian Marzynski
