When shown to students in courses across a wide swath of the social sciences and humanities, the film is guaranteed to generate thought-provoking dialog about the human condition, not just “where were the Good Germans? ” — but what connections can we draw to illuminate our own responses to what is happening across the globe — from the refugee crisis engulfing Europe to the Rwanda genocide and beyond.

“Ben Stern in Near Normal Man tells perhaps the most important story of the twentieth century. He does this with equal amounts of courage and empathy. His gracious spirit does so much to restore our hope in humanity!”
