“Revenge was my basic right... and it wasn’t important to me if I lived.” - Avenger Yehuda ‘Poldek’ Maimon
It's one of the most extraordinary stories of revenge. By 1946, just a handful of Nazis have faced trial and most of the guilty will never face justice. For many of Hitler's victims, this is not enough. Based on previously unheard recordings and exclusive interviews with those involved, this film tells the story of ‘the Avengers’, a secret organisation of Holocaust survivors whose aim is "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life”. As intensely moving as it is shocking, Avenging Evil raises profound questions about the nature of justice.
