Documentary and Discussion: Final Account

Presented by Olathe Public Library at Olathe Public Library - Indian Creek

In 2008, British filmmaker Luke Holland began interviewing the last living generation of Germans who participated in Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich–not the infamously chilling names in history books, but the everyday citizens who carried out the plans made by the architects of mass-scale genocide. These were the young men and women, then just starting their lives, who became SS members, Wehrmacht fighters, concentration camp guards and silent civilian witnesses. More than a decade and 250 interviews later, Holland has created Final Account, a raw and urgent document that reflects, in the most direct and personal way, on the question of how otherwise ordinary, aspirational human beings took part in one of the most extraordinary of all human crimes. Some discussion will follow the screening of the film. Screening made possible by Picture Motion
