Harlan – In the Shadow of Jew Süss
Harlan – In the Shadow of Jew Süss (German: Harlan – Im Schatten von Jud Süß) is a 2008 documentary film by German director Felix Moeller about one of the most notorious Nazi German filmmakers, Veit Harlan and his family. It focuses on the "wildly varying attitudes of Harlan's children and grandchildren", and how they struggle even today with the legacy of their ancestor's work.

The documentary also explores Harlan's motivations for making Jew Süss, a film that The New York Times has called "perhaps the most notorious anti-Semitic movie ever made". Harlan was the only artist from the Nazi era to be charged with war crimes.
The film uses "never-before-seen archival footage, unearthed film excerpts, rare home movies and new interviews".
