This film, in commemoration of the 65th anniversary of Kristallnacht, demonstrates how the power of art can hold us to our conscience. Fifty years after the infamous night, Austrian artist Gottfried Helnwein erected a heroic installation in Cologne – larger than life paintings of 17 children's faces. Here is his story.
