Greetings from the Edward S. Finkelstein Harrisburg Jewish Film Festival!
Please join us for a Virtual Binge Fest
of the 6-part TV miniseries,
1945 – the war is over. Switzerland, the small, neutral country at the heart of Europe, has been all but spared: Klara, her fiancé Johann and his brother Egon are looking, bright-eyed, into the future. While Klara tries to mend the wounds of the war by caring for young, displaced Holocaust survivors, Johann, who works for her industrialist father, hopes to save and modernize his father-in-law’s well-established, yet troubled textile company. Just home from military service, Egon joins the Attorney General’s office with the mission of hunting down escaped Nazis. All three of them soon realize that the narrative of post-war peace, and even of their homeland’s wartime neutrality, is more nuanced and less honorable than it appears: Johann’s professional ambitions bring him closer to those who committed unspeakable war crimes; Klara risks her marriage while growing ever closer to the survivors, all of whom are met with distrust by the locals; and Egon finds himself caught in a system that willingly turns a blind eye towards Nazi criminals for the sake of profit.
