Appeared in Library Journal on 2010-02-15:
This sensitively crafted, emotionally absorbing, and unique documentary chronicles the meeting, in 2006, of Helen Jonas-Rosenzweig, a survivor of the Plaszow Concentration Camp, and Monika Hertwig, the daughter of the camp's sadistic commandant, Amon Goeth (chillingly portrayed by Ralph Fiennes in the 1993 Academy Award-winning Schindler's List). Within days of her arrival at the camp, a 15-year-old Jonas-Rosenzweig was selected by Goeth to be his housemaid in his villa residence, from which she was eventually rescued by Oscar Schindler. Born a year before Goeth's execution by a Polish tribunal in 1946, Hertwig did not learn the truth about her father until, at age 11, it was finally revealed to her by her grandmother. Director Moll (The Last Days) follows both women from their respective homes in the United States and Germany to their meeting at the Plaszow Concentration Camp Memorial, where they tour the villa. Bonus features include an interview with the director and cinematographer and a featurette on the score. Recommended for those wanting to know more about this most inhumane of human times, from young adults to academic researchers.-Robert A. Sica, Eastern Kentucky Univ.
