In light of the systematic shooting of Jewish civilians by German soldiers in Eastern Europe, Stefan Ruzowitzky poses the question of how “normal” men become mass murderers. To aid in his study, the Oscar-winner contrasts original quotes, reports and interviews with staged (split-screen) scenes from the perpetrator’s daily life. It is a fine line between elucidation and cinematic adaptation.
