“Last month an American TV mini-series called ‘The Holocaust’ was shown in Germany for the first time since its original broadcast 40 years ago. Back in 1979 it began a series of conversations and reflections across the German nation about how it saw its recent painful history under the Nazi regime. Rev Sigrid Marten recalls watching it as a teenager, alongside her grandmother. She tells Cathy Macdonald how it began a personal realisation about her own family’s involvement during the Nazi era.”
