Description

The People VS Fritz Bauer (Der Staat gegen Fritz Bauer), (2015, 105 minutes)

This multi-award winning historical drama directed by Lars Kraume details the story of Fritz Bauer, the man who brought high-ranking German Nazi criminal Adolf Eichmann to justice. Based on real people and events, the film explores the challenges that Bauer, a German Jew, serving as an attorney general in West Germany in 1957 encountered. Tasked with tracking down former Nazi officials, he is increasingly thwarted by those around him who are still sympathetic to National Socialism. Among the host of awards the film received are six German Film Awards, a German Screen Actors Award, and the audience award at the 2016 Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival.

Immediately following the screening, Dr. Rebecca Wittmann, Associate Professor of History at the University of Toronto, will conduct a talk back with the audience.
