Pretending to have been injured in a car crash near his estate, she begs for assistance and is let in by his daughter. There she astounds them with her knowledge of Rossberg’s doings as a guard at Auschwitz. Maintaining his innocence at first, Rossberg can no longer escape the truth when Lena reveals evidence of his past actions. Exploring memory and guilt, Winter Hunt is a gripping psychological thriller.
