Split

A father and his son set off to Germany to find out whether their family participated in the Nazi atrocities. The father, born a German Christian in the last days of World War II, learned as a teenager of his people’s brutal past, deserted the German army and fled to Israel. Despite all the difficulties, he settled on a kibbutz and married the daughter of Holocaust survivors. Their son was called “Split” by the other kibbutz children, because he was half-German and half-Jewish. “Split”, now a TV cameraman, returns to Germany with his father to learn the truth about the rumor that uncle Wolfgang was a cameraman for Nazi propaganda films.
