Schächten – A Retribution
As a child, Victor witnessed the merciless killings of Jews by Nazis, and lost his mother and little sister in the Mauthausen concentration camp. Now, two decades later, he is a successful businessman living in Vienna, but still carries a burning desire for justice. But in 1960’s Austria, where the political and legal systems are still riddled with former Nazis, and large parts of Austrian society are still entangled in the past, the trial of the Nazi war criminal responsible for the murder of his mother and sister fails to secure just punishment and ends in an acquittal. When Victor also loses his grief-ridden father and his girlfriend’s family opposes their relationship because of his Jewish identity, Victor begins to lose faith in formal justice and feels he has no choice but to take matters in his own hands…..
