[Wächter is] a frightening example of how the denial common to fascist regimes can endure long afterward.Philadelphia InquirerNovember 12, 2015
What Our Fathers Did is a movie about historical and filial responsibility, about repudiation, about acceptance, about the pain we inherit, and the pain that continues to be doled out.Washington PostNovember 12, 2015
The film is not just about a very specific and difficult conversation. Ultimately, it is also about the failure of conversation itself.San Francisco ChronicleNovember 12, 2015
What starts out as a genial documentary about two sons of high officials of the Nazi Party soon turns chilling in the gripping and compelling "What Our Fathers Did: A Nazi Legacy."VarietyNovember 10, 2015

What is it like to grow up as the son of a senior Nazi, with atrocities on your family conscience? In this powerful documentary, the British lawyer Philippe Sands meets two men living in the shadow of the Third Reich in very different ways.GuardianNovember 19, 2015
It entirely upends what I confess were my own preconceptions about what such a film would be: that is, a placid, consensual study, ruefully brooding on the sins of the fathers. This is far more challenging - and more disturbing.The SpectatorNovember 19, 2015
A horribly gripping film.
