Graz, 1963. The respected local politician and wealthy farmer Franz Murer is on trial for a serious war crime allegedly committed while he was in command of the Vilnius ghetto in 1941–43. The evidence of his guilt is overwhelming. But the powers-that-be want to close this dark chapter of their country’s history once and for all.
