The Lesson – Teaching the Holocaust to Germany’s Gen Z

by Elena Horn ZFF for Kids

You may think that every child in Germany knows about the Holocaust. In fact, most of them hear about it for the first time at school when they are about 14 years old. Elena Horn’s film THE LESSON explores how new generations come to terms with this tragic chapter in history. She returns to her old school, where she accompanies various teenagers on a journey from their first classroom discussions to an emotional concentration camp visit, as they learn about targeted propaganda and the atrocities committed by their ancestors. Educational and highly enthralling!

Age rating: from 10 years, recommended from 12 years
