A time for truth

‘One woman in Germany who saw the film told me afterwards, ‘There is a box from our grandfather, it’s locked with a key and we didn’t want to open it, we didn’t want know what he did during the war,’” said Giulio Ricciarelli, the director of Labyrinth of Lies, an award-winning drama based on the trials of the commanders of Auschwitz in Germany in the mid-Sixties.

Ricciarelli, along with the movie’s star, Alexander Fehling, spoke at a press conference at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque last Tuesday.

“In school, you visit the concentration camps, you learn the history, but in families, there are still a lot of secrets,” said Ricciarelli, whose parents are Italian but who grew up in Germany.
