"Serge and Beate Klarsfeld met on a Paris Metro platform in 1960. He was a holocaust survivor whose Romanian Jewish father was assassinated by the Nazis; she a young Lutheran au pair whose father was conscripted into Hitler’s army. This chance meeting led to both wedding vows and a lifelong partnership devoted to keeping alive the memory of what happened in Germany and in France during WW II. Elisabeth Lenchener’s documentary records their many joint successes, including researching and bringing to trial numerous Nazi war criminals and leading the effort to create the wall of names at the Memorial de la Shoah in Paris.

Visiting filmmaker Elisabeth Lenchener will be present after each screening for audience discussion."

The film is in French and German with English subtitles.
