In 2014, private letters of Heinrich Himmler, the “architect of the Final Solution,” were published, which had been in private Jewish possession for decades. Vanessa Lapa has used the Himmler estate and other archival material (151 sources from 53 archives in 13 different countries) to make a documentary about a man who was at peace with himself, both professionally and personally.
Lapa transforms the documents into a psychogram about the perverse thinking of a senior member of the Nazi regime. Using his own records, the filmmaker exposes Himmler’s ideals, plans and most secret thoughts. She shows photos and films and underpins everything exclusively with quotations left by Himmler, his wife, children and the Nazi criminal’s mistress.
DER ANSTÄNDIGE premiered in 2014 in the Berlinale section “Panorama Dokumente” and received the Van Leer Award for Best Israeli Long Documentary at the Jerusalem Film Festival.
