They met in secret to negotiate the unthinkable – compensation for the survivors of the largest mass genocide in history. Survivors were in urgent need of help, but how could reparations be determined for the unprecedented destruction and suffering of a people? Reckonings explores this untold true story set in the aftermath of the Holocaust. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Roberta Grossman, Reckonings recounts the tense negotiations between Jewish and German leaders. Under the constant threat of violence, they forged ahead, knowing it would never be enough but hoping it could at least be an acknowledgement and a step towards healing.

Why the Austin Jewish Film Festival Likes This Film: An excellent documentary with information few people will have heard before. The film examines a critical moment in Jewish and Israeli history. An Austin JFF interview with Gideon Taylor, lay President of The Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany accompanies the movie.
