“Examines the Eichmann trial in an interesting and less familiar perspective.” – Time Out Israel

“Energetic and well-researched.”  – Jury’s Statement, Jerusalem Film Festival

Riveting film about the team of police investigators – Bureau 06 – formed for the intent purpose of investigating and preparing the charges brought against Adolf Eichmann, in Jerusalem, in 1961.

For nine months these men and women immersed themselves in the horrors of the Holocaust, ultimately presenting the events of the Holocaust to the world for the first time.

Intimate revelations of the investigation, and the effect it had on the individuals’ lives, are shared – including the story of Avner W. Less, Adolf Eichmann’s personal interrogator, who spent more than 275 hours with Eichmann, eventually leaving Israel and reclaiming his German identity card.

“Superheroes are based on great people, real people like Alice Herz Sommer.” – Nicholas Reed

As the world’s oldest pianist and Holocaust survivor, 109 year-old Alice Herz Sommer shares her views on how to live a long and happy life. She discusses music, laughter and how to remain optimistic come what may. Alice is unequivocal in stating that music preserved her sanity and her life – while bringing hope into the lives of countless others: “Music saved my life and music saves me still.”

The film features beautiful photographs and rare film footage that truly brings Alice’s extraordinary story to life.
