Murderers Among Us: The Simon Wiesenthal Story
Cast & Crew
A movie depicting the life of famed Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal. After being liberated from an Austrian concentration camp in 1945, Wiesenthal agrees to work with the American War Crimes Unit to document the horrifying deeds of the Third Reich and to help apprehend the guilty. As he begins his work, he slowly pieces his own life together. Wiesenthal is reunited with his wife, whom he had believed was dead. In Vienna, he opens a documentation center, but his increasing devotion to hunting down the architects of the Holocaust begins to take a toll on his personal life. His investigations lead to the arrest and trial of Franz Murer, the "Butcher of Vilna," and Adolf Eichmann.
