Burghart Klaussner delivers a masterful performance as Fritz Bauer, the attorney general in West Germany who play a crucial role in capturing high-level Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann. Bauer, who is Jewish, has been trying to take Third Reich crimes to court ever since he returned from exile in Denmark. But he has been blocked by the fierce German determination to repress its sinister past. In 1957, when he receives crucial evidence that Eichmann, responsible for the mass deportation of Jews, is allegedly hiding in Buenos Aires, Bauer contacts Mossad, Israel’s secret service, which is treason. His goal is not revenge for the Holocaust—but to build a better future for Germany. “If we want to do something for our country, we’ll have to betray it in this case,” he says.
The film will be introduced by Dr. Didier Lenglare, professor at Leeward Community College.
