My Nazi Legacy

tomorrow evening (wednesday 30th), 9.00-10.30pm, on bbc 4 tv
my nazi legacy (directed by david evans) (in the storyville series)

“Three men travel together across Europe.
For the eminent human rights lawyer and author Philippe Sands, it means visiting the place where much of his own Jewish family was destroyed by the fathers of the two men he has come to know.
For the other two, the journey involves a confrontation with the acts of their fathers, who were both senior Nazi officers.
They are Niklas Frank, whose father, Hans Frank, was Hitler’s personal lawyer, and was tried and sentenced to death by hanging at Nuremberg; and Horst von Wachter,, whose father was Otto von Wachter.
An emotional, psychological exploration of three men wrestling with their past, the present of Europe, and conflicting versions of the truth.”
