Overview

Filmmakers Rolf Bickel and Dietrich Wager draw on over 430 hours of original audiotapes to present an unparalleled look at the investigation, trial procedures, and verdict of one of the most important court cases in German history. Over the course of twenty grueling months, the German court would hear the testimonies of 360 witnesses from nineteen countries (including 211 Auschwitz survivors), against twenty-two people who stood accused of orchestrating one of the largest acts of genocide in recorded human history. With survivors of Auschwitz confronting perpetrators they hadn't seen in two decades and nearly two years of testimonies, this historic trial is sure to appeal to law scholars and history scholars alike.
