Two women from opposite sides of Hitler's Third Reich meet in Toronto, years after the Second World War--one, a Jewish girl orphaned by the regime, the other, possibly the Nazi guard who protected her. Weaving together their stories, this powerful documentary intimately explores and contrasts their war experiences and crushing losses, and witnesses their fraught reunion more than half a century later.

Return to Reichenbach is the first documentary in the body of Holocaust material that simultaneously captures the stories of an everyday Jewish girl and German women under Hitler. It provides a rare opportunity to view history through their eyes--a survivor searching for closure, and a woman who paid a huge price for ideals she supported or was too afraid to oppose.
