Blood Money

60 minutes documentary, 1999-2000

Blood Money explores the motivations and political manoeuvres behind the complex restitution and compensation agreements, also known as “Wiedergutmachung” or “making amends,” between Germany, Israel, and the Jewish world. Through emotionally charged testimony from victims, former government officials, and lawyers, this film tells a unique story from the perspectives of the parties involved.
