In the aftermath of the Holocaust, Jewish and German leaders began meeting in secret to negotiate the incomprehensible—compensation for survivors of the largest mass genocide in history. Survivors were in urgent need, but how could reparations be determined for the unprecedented destruction and suffering of a people? The teams pressed on under constant threat of violence, knowing that no compensation would ever be enough, but hoping a settlement would have symbolic value and be a step toward healing. The film reenacts many of the key moments in the tense negotiations that came to be known as the Luxembourg Agreements and incorporates testimony of survivors, witnesses, and scholars. It was produced in consultation with The Claims Conference (Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany) and the governments of Israel and Germany. From the award winning director of Above and Beyond and Who Will Write Our Story?
