THE PEOPLE VS. FRITZ BAUER
Lars Kraume | Germany | 2015 | 105 min. | Drama | German with English subtitles Sunday, March 26, 3:30 pm (Special Guest, Eli Rosenbaum)
Thursday, March 30, 7:30 pm
Gripping and suspenseful, The People vs. Fritz Bauer recounts the untold story behind the historic capture of SS lieutenant colonel, Adolf Eichmann. This riveting drama pays homage to the defining life’s work of Attorney General, Fritz Bauer, who fought to expose the crimes of the Third Reich in 1957 Germany. Due to his distrust of the German Justice System, Bauer risked treason by colluding with the secretive Israeli Mossad to hunt down the elusive Nazi war criminal.
Special Guest Speaker: Eli Rosenbaum
For more than two decades, Eli Rosenbaum has led the U.S. Justice Department in investigative and prosecutorial efforts in Nazi cases. Even though only a small percentage of Holocaust perpetrators came to the US after World War II, Rosenbaum’s unit has prosecuted and won more cases against Nazi criminals than all of the other governments of the world combined
