The Witness House – April 25, 2018 

April 25, 2018
1945. The Nuremberg Trials are about to begin; the war criminals are to be brought to justice. In a guest house of witnesses of the trials, perpetrators and victims of the Nazi crimes are housed under one roof.  On any given evening, concentration camp survivors sat next to personal friends of Hitler, resistance fighters next to SS officers, and counterintelligence officers next to former heads of the Gestapo. Hired by the U.S. military administration as a house manager, Countess Belavar does her best to maintain a cultivated atmosphere among her guests. At first, everybody tries to adjust to the others and to the new times. But with the first testimonies in the courtroom, the realities of the past become too present to be ignored.

(Running time: 105 minutes, German with English subtitles)
