A VISITOR FROM THE LIVING

Synopsis

How on earth could “M.R”, a Swiss Army officer and delegate of the international Red Cross stationed in Berlin from 1942, possibly even begin to write a “favourable” report on the plight of Jews detained in Theresienstadt – off the black of just a day-long visit, heavily supervised by the Nazi’s ? Is he unfeeling or just blind ? Claude Lanzman sets out to discover the truth from interview footage 35 years after the events, updated recently.
