Editorial Reviews

An unprecedented PBS documentary exploring the 65-year effort to identify, prosecute and punish the 20th Century's most notorious murderers. In the face of apathy, obstruction and violence, the men and women who pursued Nazi fugitives not only brought a measure of dignity to the victims of the Holocaust, they also reminded the international community that enemies of humanity must be punished - if humanity is to survive.

Format:DVD
Countless books, films, and television programs have described the genocide perpetrated by the Nazis during the Second World War, when millions of men, women, and children were shot, hanged, buried alive, burned to death, starved, experimented upon, and gassed throughout Europe. We have all seen horrifying footage of emaciated and disease-ridden victims and photographs of smug German soldiers who took part in the Final Solution. In addition, a great deal has been written about what happened to the Nazis after the war. Did they pay for their transgressions?

Although approximately one thousand Nazi officials were convicted of crimes against humanity during the Nuremberg Trials, hundreds of thousands of perpetrators escaped and went on to live normal lives. They held jobs, ran businesses, raised families, and in some cases, lived to a ripe old age. Some are still alive today. "Elusive Justice" is an eye-opening documentary, written and directed by Jonathan Silvers and expertly narrated by Candice Bergen. Silvers shot footage in eight countries over three years, in which he exposes the shameful truth about the reluctance of the Allies to capture and punish those who committed crimes against humanity.

How can this be? We learn from commentary by historians, Holocaust survivors, attorneys, politicians, and military officials that: 1) The Allies were more interested in fighting communists than they were in prosecuting Nazis, some of whom had scientific knowledge that Americans needed. 2) Members of the clergy helped Nazis escape to South America with forged American Red Cross passports. 3) The Argentinean government provided a safe haven to Nazis, who gladly taught the dictators brutal techniques of imprisonment and torture.

4.0 out of 5 stars How soon they forget January 31, 2014
By John
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I am amazed at how fast people forget about the horror's of war and let these monsters go free. It almost makes us guilty of genocide, because in a way we are condoning it by letting these people go.

I bought this video as a gift for someone after seeing the PBS special, which I found extremely informative and moving. The recipient was pleased to receive it and found it equally interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really interesting April 28, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It is very interesting understanding the past to be sure we do not repeat the same mistakes in the future and how human minds can become so apart from reality.

You'll get a feeling for the post war times from this movie. The Nazis were monsters and deserved to be hunted down.

Amazing story of how many were caught, but so many more got away or were forgiven. Very educational and a reminder that we should never forget "crimes against humanity."

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative and well documented July 13, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Very informative and enlightening. It is understandable why the Jewish people want to do everything within their power to be and stay free. We should never forget this atrocity and make sure subsequent generations do not forget as well.
