CINEMASOURCE SYNOPSIS
This documentary describes the life and legacy of the famous Nazi-hunter and humanist Simon Wiesenthal, who died in 2005. A secular Jew born in the Ukraine, Wiesenthal survived the Holocaust but lost 89 members of his own and his wife's family in the concentration camps. He dedicated more than six decades of his life to tracking down Nazi war criminals. An architect by trade, he never practiced this profession after the war. Not only did Wiesenthal succeed in contributing to the prosecution of 1,100 war criminals, he was also one of the first to draw public attention to the camps that held gypsies, homosexuals and many others who suffered under Nazi rule.
