Dann bin ich ja ein Mörder

If that´s so, then I´m a Murderer

On March 29, 1945, some 60 Jewish slave laborers were shot in Deutsch Schützen, Austria. One of the suspected murderers is former SS junior squad leader Adolf Storms. Over six decades after the crime was committed, Walter Manoschek manages to interview him. In talks with Storms, Hitler Youth leaders who were involved, and Jews who survived the massacre, Manoschek reconstructs the crime and poses questions about forgetting, suppressing the past and responsibility.
