Synopsis

A former Auschwitz guard responsible for collecting the stolen loot of Jewish prisoners, Oskar Gröning was 94 when charged by German prosecutors as an accessory to mass murder. As the frail old man faces survivors, a debate rages over his complicity and fitness to stand trial. Racing against time, a new generation of investigators seeks to atone for past sins, pursuing charges against the last living perpetrators of the Holocaust while testing the limits of international law.
