Tangled Roots

Through intimate interviews with both her Jewish relatives in America and her German Lutheran relatives abroad, she discovers a rich family tapestry spanning three continents, shaped by war, courage, prejudice, and fear. Tangled Roots gives a personal voice to a rarely-heard minority, a generation of German children branded forever by their parent’s actions during the war. The film also gives an original voice to the countless Jewish friends and family changed forever by the horrors of the Holocaust.
