Watch the award-winning film from the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, Morgenthau: Three Men. Three Generations. One Fight.

MORGENTHAU tells the epic story of three generations of an American family whose continual fight for justice brought them to the forefront of the most dramatic events of the past hundred years. The lives of Henry Morgenthau Senior, United States Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire, Henry Morgenthau Junior, United States Secretary of Treasury under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Robert M. Morgenthau, District Attorney of New York County for over 30 years reveal new perspectives on the social and political shifts throughout the twentieth century. From fighting for international action against the genocide of Armenians on the cusp of WWI, through the efforts to rescue Jews during the Holocaust despite American political obstruction, and on to the struggle to reduce street crime and pioneer the prosecution of white collar corruption in New York City, the trajectory of the three Morgenthau generations epitomizes the American experience and the lasting value of public service.
