Storyline

Pete Suvak is a loved and respected high school teacher and mayor of a small Canadian community. After concerned mother Kate McKinnon finds out that Suvak is teaching Nazism and "Jew-bashing" to her son and others, she takes action to have him removed from the school. That doesn't help anything as he still has the community behind him. So the next step is to take Suvak to court. Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

A superb documentary that should be seen more often
11 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen "Evil in Clear River" and was shocked when the documentary pointed out that people have actually been taught, in public schools, that the Holocaust never took place; that, in fact, according to such teachers, Hitler was "oppressed" by the Jews and had no choice but to try and eliminate them. These "revisionist historians" try to make the claim that Communism and Judaism are allied, which is total nonsense. The movie is gripping and quite suspenseful and is based on a TRUE story which occurred in the 1980s in Canada. I recommend that this documentary be shown more often.
