    Probably for the last time former SS-guards recently faced trial for their role in German concentration camps, as for a long time Germany’s justice system had difficulty dealing with its countless unpunished Nazi crimes. However, in 1963 General State Prosecutor Fritz Bauer aptly indicated that one should also prosecute small cogs in the machines of industrialized mass murder. Interspersed with moving first hand witness accounts of concentration camp survivors the film reveals a fascinating history of why it took so long for justice to find its way into German courts.
