Just what we need: another Holocaust movie!
You can read about the latest Holocaust movie at http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/movies/remember-review-memorys-no-help-in-christopher-plummers-hunt-for-a-nazi-20160502-gok8zv.html
The following quote is from the article, cited above:
The octogenarian [Max, played by Christopher Plummer] has dementia, but that doesn’t stop his wheelchair-bound fellow resident Max Rosenbaum (Martin Landau) pressing on him written instructions and a reminder of a pledge to carry out their shared plan now he’s a widower. Like a hypnotist instructing a subject, Max grimly sets Zev in motion.
Their scheme, which has Zev unsteadily travelling across American and Canada, is a revenge quest to find the Nazi officer who ushered the pair’s families into the gas chambers at the Auschwitz concentration camp 70 years ago: Max has a name – Rudy Kurlander – and four possible candidates. Zev means wolf in Hebrew, Max reminds him, but with his shaky hands and easy confusion, the ageing Holocaust survivor is an unlikely weapon.
Excuse me for living, but in my humble opinion, the basic premise of this movie is wrong. A “Nazi officer” would not have escorted Jews into a gas chamber. That was a job for a Sonderkommando, a Jewish helper who assisted the Nazi officers in the gassing of the Jews. Nazi officers were strutting around in their nice clean uniforms; they did not dirty their hands by shoving Jews into the gas chambers.
This movie will open in a theater near you on May 12, 2016.
