Murer : anatomy of a trial / a film by Christian Frosch ; produced by Adrien Chef, Mathias Forberg, Viktoria Salcher, and Paul Thiltges.
"On the basis of original records, Murer, anatomy of a trial, reconstructs the 1963 proceedings against Franz Murer, a wealthy Austrian farmer with a sterlilng reputation, that took place in Graz. This respected local politician and family man was in charge of the Vilnius ghetto from 1941-1943, where its residents called him the 'Butcher of Vilnius.' Solely 600 of the 80,000 Jews who originally lived there survived Nazi rule. Survivors came from around the world to testify at the trial, leaving little doubt of Murer's guilt. This resulted in one of the most serious scandals of Austria's Second Republic for which the justice system, press and governmental policy were responsible" --Container.
