Best film I have seen in many years!
I saw this film last month in Erlangen Germany, on vacation. I can understand German pretty well, and went with (German) friends whom I know well enough to discuss some obviously difficult topics.

It\'s been a long time since the Nazi regime, and even so it\'s still just yesterday. Regardless of one\'s opinion, I think it\'s terrific that this is becoming a topic that people (Germans especially) can finally talk about.

Consider the person who gets drunk and kills someone with a car, and then multiply it million-fold. The shame, the inability to face it, the denial, the embarrassment. I don\'t envy today\'s Germans trying to reconcile a horrible past and/or go beyond it, I do, however, admire their willingness to look at some awful views of themselves, if only (I hope) in the past. The holocaust can never be forgotten. Still, to be able to openly discuss it is something to embrace.

For my friends and me, this film catalysed several meaningful discussions. How could a people fall for Hilter\'s charm? How far does the guilt extend? Can I \"overlook\" the holocaust when it comes to my current German friends (who were not alive in 1940)? Was there something uniquely German, or is racial hatred someting to maintain vigilance about? Is America becoming as xenophobic and paranoid as Germany was?

Best film I have seen in many years!
