The complex relationship between Hannah Arendt and Martin Heidegger, from their first encounter as student and teacher in 1924 to their meeting after the war in 1950. Their story raises ethical questions about how politics and philosophy relate to real life. In the background is the one-sided love affair between German Jews and German culture as an echo of the one-sided love affair between Arendt and Heidegger.
