Overview

The figures are astonishing and deeply unsettling: historians now estimate that during World War II, approximately 150,000 part-Jewish men served in the Nazis' Wermacht army, thus unwittingly contributing to the planned, systematic annihilation of the Jewish race. According to the confused Nuremberg Laws of 1935, which defined these men of mixed Jewish ancestry as 'Mischlinge,' such conscriptions were in fact perfectly acceptable to the Nazis. This paradox even resulted in a recruitment poster for the German army picturing a half-Jewish man named Werner Goldberg. Loosely adapted from Bryan Mark Rigg's tome Hitler's Jewish Soldiers, Larry Price's haunting documentary revisits this disturbing aspect of the Second World War, using a combination of interviews and rare archival footage.
