Hitler's Daughter is a documentary that tackles the subject of anti-Semitism in my native Poland. It's the finger that points on something embarrassing, a spotlight on something that's usually in the shadow.
I am making this documentary because one day I woke up and realised I had been deceived my entire life. I had been deceived by the Polish school system, I had been deceived by the Catholic Church and I had been deceived by my fellow Polish citizens. With my documentary I aim to stop this deception, reach out to as many people as possible and put a stop to the Neo-Nazi movements that are emerging not just in Poland but throughout the world.
My inspiration for this documentary has always been my involvement in the production of the Steven Spielberg directed film, “Schindler's List”. Prior to being involved with this film I'd never even heard of The Holocaust. Working on the set as a 19 year old opened my eyes to facts that I previously had no knowledge of, facts that I started to explore further.
By exploring these facts further I discovered an anti-Semitic problem in Poland still exists and I want to do something to put a stop to it. I may not be able to change the world but I can expose the evil that hates the spotlight.
I don’t claim that Poland is an Anti-Semitic country because (among other things) the official position of Poland’s governments as well as the president of Poland is clear in this case. Officially Anti-Semitism is not tolerated. Yet I do see among Poles hatred. Among Poles that has been witnesses to the greatest tragedy of all in their own country: Holocaust. For example jokes about Jews are deprived any human conscience. But I don’t want to talk about jokes.
I am making my film not to destroy anything but to build a dialog, a bridge between nations. About important issues one should speak out laud not remain silent. Silence in this case would have been participation in the consent of a lie.
So time has come that an everyday, ordinary Polish guy like me should say STOP. Stop to those who are acting on behalf of the entire Polish nation and hate everything that is of foreign origin and sees conspiracy in everything.
It is time that a Pole takes a stand in this issue, not a Jew, not a famous movie director, but ordinary Polish man who is fed up with apologizing that he is a Pole and can begin to be proud of it.
My film won’t be pro-governmental and it won’t favor any party. It won’t be anti-Polish or anti-Catholic. Sharp critique of Radio Station Maryja is not an assault of the Polish Catholic Church. My film will not exclusively concentrate on Poland but all European countries where Anti-Semitic attacks significantly raised during last year’s; Slovakia, Germany, Great Britain, Sweden, Hungary, France and many others.
This film is important of historical reasons: we can’t let history repeat itself, of sociological reason: it is time that hatred toward Jews size to exist after almost 6000 years, that we teach our children to honor and respect all kinds of religion, nation, and sexual orientation. That will show that there is no man, no organization and not even a branch of Church that has right to pursue another group.
