Just Reel Education: How The Holocaust Came to TV, A Post Film Discussion

At the beginning of 1979, after more than 30 years of collective repression, a dramatized and emotional US television miniseries ensured that the German population was suddenly reminded of the terrible Nazi crimes against the Jews. Even before the TV broadcast neo-Nazis blasted in vain transmitting towers in Germany to prevent this. From the creation and the shooting over the broadcast to the tremendous reactions, documentary filmmaker Alice Agnes Kirchner tells the story of this emotional television event, which led to a paradigm shift in the perception of German Nazi crimes. Available on Monday March 29, 2021 with a talkback on Thursday, April 1, 2021 at 3:00pm with Director, Alice Agnes Kirchner. 2019 44 minutes
