Program Description

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 murder of six million Jews. It will be unveiled this May, on the 60th 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.

“A Jew Among the Germans” is a Marz Associates film for WGBH/Frontline. The producer, writer, and director is Marian Marzynski, who also serves as the film’s correspondent.
