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 documents this untold true story set in the aftermath of the Holocaust.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Roberta Grossman (Who Will Write Our History), Reckonings recounts the tense negotiations between Jewish and German leaders that resulted in the 1952 Luxembourg Agreement. This engrossing documentary brings these moments to life with dramatised scenes and interviews with historians as well as Ben Ferencz, who had previously served as prosecutor at the Nuremberg War Crimes Trial.
