This is 2004 documentary directed by Menachem Daum.
It is about the Jewish family and the Christian farmers who hid from the Nazis the Jewish father---the father of the director.
After hearing a disturbing tape of a rabbi openly preaching "hatred" of non-Jews, the director decides to fly to Israel to discuss the matter with his two sons, concerned with the "ethical legacy" he is responsible for leaving them.
The reunion of both families is heart-warming.
The film simply says that, after all, human beings should live peacefully.

Wonderfully produced. A great film.

An interesting account of an entire family's lineage that traces back to a single fateful moment in time. This film shows how a mind can change and how the apparently unforgiven can be exhonerated.
