Third screening of 'Portraying Perpetrators', a film series organized by the “Reverberations of World War II” group at UCL

'German filmmaker Malte Ludin explores the questionable legacy of his father, executed Plenipotentiary Nazi Party Minister Hanns Ludin, in this documentary that delves into a dark family history while exploring just how stories are passed down through the generations.

It's been 60 years since the end of World War II, and though the story of Hanns Ludin is now a matter of public record, his family continues to whitewash their history and deny the brutal facts.' - rottentomatoes

The film will be shown in the original version with English subtitles.

This event is co-organized by the UCL European Institute.
