A film whose core is a haunting question: When parents are monstrous, where does filial love begin and end?

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, 2013-02-18

 

The sins of the fathers have seldom weighed so heavy as in the odd, intriguing and ultimately moving Hitler's Children.

John Anderson, Variety, 2012-11-16

 

Haunting documentary about the descendants of top Nazi leaders struggling to endure their horrific legacy.

Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, 2012-11-16

 

Quiet, simple and soaked in sorrow, "Hitler's Children" takes a stripped-down approach to an emotionally sophisticated subject.

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 2012-11-16

 

How these men and women have chosen to face this inherited burden directly or flee from it creates a fascinating spectrum the film explores via quietly intimate interviews.

Alison Willmore, AV Club, 2012-11-15

 

Hitler's Children is a powerful and well-judged presentation of the stories and their impossibilities.

Michelle Orange, Village Voice, 2012-11-13

 

The moral weight of "Hitler's Children" is unmistakable. So is that weight's inertness.

Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, 2013-01-03

 

It's always dispiriting to see an ideal subject given shallow treatment, and one spends most of this documentary wishing a more experienced director had made it.

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, 2012-11-15
