"Hitler’s Children" is a film about the descendants of the most powerful figures in the Nazi regime: men and women who were left a legacy that permanently associates them with one of the greatest crimes in history. What is it like for them to have grown up with a name that immediately raises images of murder and genocide? How do they cope with the fact that they are the children of some of the most notorious people from the history.
For more then sixty years, they have lived in the shadows, trying to rebuild their lives without the constant reminders of what their fathers and grandfathers once did. Only now they are willing to bare the scars of their awful legacy. Only now they are ready to tell their story.
