The Interrogation (Ha Chakira)

The Interrogation

1946, Poland. Rudolf Franz Ferdinand Höss, the longest serving commander of Auschwitz concentration camp, is awaiting trial in a Polish prison. Albert Piotrowski, a young Jewish prosecutor, is appointed to interrogate Hoss and elicit the perfect confession from him. The encounter between the two men unveils the banality of the evil and the frightening, predictable routine that unfolded in the camps.

This unsettling drama is a co-production between Israel and Germany, and is based on Höss’s memoir, written in prison prior wrote to his execution.
