Great story, great movie
21 May 2019 | by martin-joestSee all my reviews

Maybe this story is not true, but there are thousands of stories like this. It is a memorial to justice, not to law(s). And a reminder against fascism and similar idologies. Watch the movie, read the book. Once, twice and more. Tell all the people you know. This movie is a reminder
