Their family names alone evoke horror: Hoess, Himmler, Frank, Goering, von Ribbentrop.
Hitler's Children is a film about the descendants of the most powerful figures in the Nazi regime: men and women who were left a legacy that permanently associates them with one of the greatest crimes in history. What is it like for them to have grown up with a name that immediately raises images of murder and genocide? Sons and daughters of notorious Nazis share how they deal with the fact that they bear the genetics of some of the worst criminals of the modern era.
