Scars that will never heal

One more tale about Nazis and the nightmare they brought to the world through the concentration and extermination camps all over Europe; camps that made millions of victims. Here, we have a woman survivor from hell who seeks to revenge, to escape her horrible past. A Young woman who seeks for a new life. A young woman who finally realizes that no escape is possible. And in an unexpected way...As the summary line tells is very clearly, she suddenly meets just in front of her one of her former hangmen, played here by the so always good Nazi character Anton Diffring. I guess he's the actor who played the more Nazis officers in the whole movie industry. Will the young female survivor succeed in her desperate thirst of vengeance? Watch this Worth episode and then find out. Anton Diffring is here very powerful, and in an unexpected way.
