The Quarrel is a 1991 dramatic film directed by Eli Cohen and based on the short story written by Chaim Grade that explores the controversial debates of two Holocaust survivors, who after years of suffering finally reunite to discuss their visions on life. Hersh Rasseyner (Saul Rubinek) was a prisoner at the Nazi concentration camp in Auschwitz, but he survived without loosing his faith in God. He is a rabbi who dedicates his life to prayer and to his students, and the Holocaust only reinforced his beliefs in God. Chaim (R.H. Thompson) is a writer who lost his wife and sons in the war. He wasn't religious before the war, but his tragic loss made him even more distant from faith in God. When he meets Hersh in Montreal after years of separation they sit down in a park to discuss their differences and to share their conflicting thoughts on religion, humanity, Holocaust and post-war society. While Hersh firmly believes in God's plans, Chaim says that all good things come from people's humanity and sincerity rather than from any spiritual presence.moreless
