Duration   2h

This is an in-person program.

In 2008, British filmmaker Luke Holland began interviewing the last living generation of Germans to have participated in Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich – not the infamously chilling names in history books, but the everyday citizens who carried out the plans made by the architects of genocide. These were the young men and women, then just starting their adult lives, who became SS members, Wehrmacht fighters, concentration camp guards, and silent civilian witnesses. More than a decade and 250 interviews later, Holland created Final Account, a film that reflects, in the most direct and personal way, on the question of how otherwise ordinary people took part in one of the most extraordinary of all human crimes.

A discussion between Dr. Sara Abosch-Jacobson, Barbara Rabin Chief Education Officer at DHHRM, and Bart Weiss, filmmaker, founder/director of Dallas VideoFest, and artistic director of 3 Stars Jewish Cinema, follows the screening.

Bart Weiss is an award-winning independent film and video producer, director, editor, and educator who has lived in Dallas since 1981. He is the director and founder of the Dallas VideoFest, Artistic Director of 3 Stars Jewish Cinema, and producer of the TV show “Frame of Mind” on KERA. He has taught film and video at Texas A&M's Visualization Lab, Southern Methodist University, the University of Texas at Austin, and West Virginia State College and is currently an Associate Professor at UT Arlington. Previous roles include President of the Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers, founding board member of Dallas Artists Research and Exhibition, and Vice President of the Texas Association of Film and Tape Professionals. He has been a video columnist for The Dallas Morning News, Dallas Times Herald, and United Features Syndicate.

This program is part of the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum's Permanent Exhibition Highlight Series.
