Based on his wartime diary and photo album, this documentary, recounts Gerhard M.'s experiences with his unit, which was engaged in "retaliatory measures in captured areas." Gerhard M.'s job was to resettle Jews, execute partisans, and seize valuables for the Reich. After the war, his diary and photo album were discovered by the East German Communist authorities which led to Gerhard M.'s conviction of war crimes by a Soviet court and his execution by firing squad in 1952.
