The Tour Guide

Directed by: Amos Geva
27 Minutes, 2014

To be Jewish in Berlin is to discover yourself eating a sandwich in what was once Hitler’s office, to pass the headquarters of the SS on your way to your dentist appointment. Nirit Ben Joseph, an Israeli who has lived in Berlin for 26 years, is a “Holocaust tour guide” in the city. Her profession offers regular opportunity to consider what it means to be a Jew in Germany today. The Tour Guide raises questions questions about immigration, identity and how we address the past.
