A Father's Job (2021) is a german short film and tells the story of a Jewish woman's fate in the middle of the last century in Germany. The fictional character named Anna Friedrich stands for numerous individual fates. Despite their status as "privileged Jews", they became increasingly subjected to humiliation, causing thousands to commit suicide.[1]

Plot[edit]

Johann Friedrich and his Jewish wife Anna have a so called mixed marriage. When Johann is drafted and has to go to war his wife and daughter Helga stay at home. Due to the mixed marriage status Anna is considered a privileged Jew, hoping she will be spared from deportation. Subjected to increasing humiliation and desperate because of her loneliness Anna commits suicide.

Once he's home, Johann escapes into an illusionary world where time has stood still. This is where he fights his own demons and tries to cope with his pain.
