Hannah and Martin
  • Play
  • "In the 1920's, Hannah Arendt, a Jewish student at Freiburg University, caught the eye of professor Martin Heidegger, whom many considered the future of German philosophy.

    He soon became her teacher and mentor.

    As his affiliation with the Nazi Party grew, she was sent away to study with the philosopher Karl Jaspers. In 1933, Arendt fled Germany, went to the US and became a political writer.

    After the war, she joined the international intellectual community in demanding that Martin be stripped of his teaching position at Freiburg. However, years later, while she was in Nuremberg, she decided to visit her former teacher in order to understand the full length of his involvement with the party."
