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? Directed by 2018 Washington Jewish Film Festival Visionary Award Winner Roberta Grossman (Who Will Write our History, Blessed is the Match: Hannah Senesh), Reckonings recounts the tense negotiations between Jewish and German leaders. Under the constant threat of violence, they forged ahead, knowing that the size of the settlement would never be enough but hoping it could at least be an acknowledgement and a step towards healing.
