Journey to Justice

Synopsis
This documentary tells the story of Howard Triest, a German Jew who fled Nazi Germany in 1939 when he was 16-years old, returned as an American soldier and then served as an interpreter during the Nuremberg Trials, where he came face-to-face with the imprisoned Nazi leaders who were collectively responsible for the death of six million Jews, including Howard’s own parents at Auschwitz. In 1947 he bought a 16mm camera and filmed the ruins of Munich: the result of this, the short film MUNICH: CAPITAL OF BAVARIA is included as an extra on the DVD.
