Description

More than 40 years after serving as an SS officer at Auschwitz, Oskar Gröning told the world what he had done; his admission led to his trial for complicity in the murder of 300,000 Jews. While the majority of SS officers have gone unprosecuted, a new generation is reopening investigations against the living perpetrators of some of history’s worst crimes. Gröning’s trial and others like it raise fundamental moral questions with few simple answers.
