Briscoe and Green investigate the murder of an elderly woman, Leah Glaser, who is found dead in her apartment. She had just been to an ATM machine, so they believe robbery is the motive. They find a link to other robberies and then to the same home care specialist. What they eventually learn is that Leah was a WW II concentration camp survivor who was testifying against a Nazi war criminal, Stefan Anders, facing deportation. The forensic evidence suggests that someone other than Anders pushed his way into Glaser's apartment and they find a link to a white supremacist record producer. Written by garykmcd

The character of Anders is supposed to be a former SS officer but his so-called Waffen SS photograph suggests that he was in fact regular army (regular forces wore an eagle above the right-breast pocket, whereas SS personnel wore it on the left upper arm). See more »

Holocaust deniers, cranks, anti-Semites disguising their real agenda.
7 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

A Chinese takeout delivery man noticed an open door in the hallway. There were traces of blood and an old woman (Shirl Bernheim) lied on the floor beaten and smothered to death. The victim had a broken hip so delivery boys took groceries to her home and there were a nurse who took care of her at her residence. A couple of ambulance drivers used to steal stuff from these old age people to supplement their wages, but they were not for sure killers. After the victim's daughter flew from Israel to arrange her mother's funeral, police realized the old lady was a holocaust survivor and that led investigation to a different angle. She was about to testify against a Nazi officer who lived freely in New York City: someone, maybe some Neo-Nazi guys, wanted to keep her mouth shut. A victim footage could play a crucial role in jurors' feelings, but it's up to the judge to allow it, because there were no chance to a cross examination.

A man could be convicted after 60 years from his real crimes. This trial reminds me Priebke, a Nazi low rank officer guilty for Fosse Ardeatine Massacre, whose trial hit the Italian headlines in mid '90.
