Followed by a Q&A with Matthew Shoychet
70 years after the end of the war, 94-year-old Oskar Gröning was charged with the murder of 300,000 Jews. The defendant’s age and his role in overseeing the confiscation of the victims’ possessions on arrival at the camp sparked worldwide debate on his culpability and fitness to stand trial. This powerful documentary explores complex legal and moral questions, questions that affect not only our remembrance of the Holocaust but also the promise it will never happen again.
