This Sunday on Soundstage: A River in the Desert by Mark Leib: In 1941, an SS officer following the German army into Poland encounters the Jewish philosophy professor whom he studied with and idolized a decade earlier. In a tense confrontation, the younger and the elder man consider the lives that they’ve chosen and the forces that motivate them. Can a Nazi and a Jew find any common ground whatsoever? And will the SS man be able to do a favor for his old teacher – or is it too late for anyone’s generosity?
