R | | Drama, History
A story that exposes the conspiracy of prominent German institutions and government branches to cover up the crimes of Nazis during World War II.
Based on the life of Frankfurt's attorney general Fritz Bauer and three of his prosecutors. They all were instrumental for the holding of the important 'Auschwitz trials' in 1963.
Generalstaatsanwalt Fritz Bauer:
If you think this is all about who's guilty, partly guilty or innocent, then you've learned nothing, nothing at all.
The Mourner's Kaddish, the Jewish prayer for the dead, is recited in the film using the modern Israeli Hebrew pronunciation. The version of the Kaddish that Kirsch would have known (and that his prayerbook would've contained) would have used the older Ashkenazic pronunciation used by German and Eastern European Jews. Instead of saying, "Yitgadal v' yitkadash," as they do in the film, they they should be saying, "Yisgadal v'yiskadash."
