Documentary Review | Nazi Hunters
This documentary follows the postwar story as the world seeks justice from the holocaust and as Nazi officials are sentenced for their war crimes. It relies heavily on authentic footage from the time period, with few interviews interspersed between. It examines the fate of Nazi soldiers in general and shows the many executions which took place shortly after the war. The fate of specific Nazi officers is also examined, with many ending in death and few with forgiveness.
I found this documentary slightly misleading. Though it opens with claims of hunting Nazi officials, the majority of the film pulls heavily on historical information that is already available to the public. Overall the film was fascinating to watch, but it does include graphic content. Many executions were filmed and those moments are shown without any censorship. I would recommend this film to anyone with an interest in post-world war II consequences.
