SERET: Avenging Evil + Q&A

Cinema

 

Directed by Nick Green | 2019 | Documentary | Israel | English, Hebrew with English subtitles | 1hr 19m |

This extraordinary documentary asks profound questions on the nature of justice, vengeance and how human beings might choose to behave when they have been subjected to incomprehensible cruelty.
In the dying days of WWII, a secret organisation of Holocaust survivors plan a terrible revenge. Just as the Nazis had killed 6 million Jews, they will kill 6 million Germans. The last surviving avengers tell their astonishing story.

Most of the guilty will never face justice. For many of Hitler's victims, this is not enough. Based on previously unheard recordings and exclusive interviews with those involved - all of whom are over 90 - this film tells the story of a remarkable secret organisation of Holocaust survivors who decide to take matters into their own hands. Assembled by the warrior-poet Abba Kovner, their aim is "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life." Their plan: to murder 6 million Germans in one go by infiltrating German cities and poisoning the water supply.

Q&A with Director Nick Green and Story Producer Avi Merkado
