Werner Kelmperer stars as one of the most infamous mass murderers in all history in this true story. With the defeat of Germany that ends World War II in Europe, the Allies discover the true horror of more than six million Jews slaughtered by the Nazis ... and the fact that one of the architects of this unimaginable crime has escaped! Now, follow the story of Eichmann's flight to Barcelona and Argentina and the Israeli agents determined to bring him to justice.
The most chilling scene is to see the SS characters of Werner Klemperer and John Banner (Four years before "Hogan's Heroes") matter of factly greeting the Jewish arrivals to the death camp. The contrast between the high comedy of their work together later on belied how easy a shift of perspective of the Third Reich could be achieved. I recommend this film just for this extremely chilling scene alone.
