126. THE FINAL VERDICT: A HOLOCAUST TRIAL IN THE 21ST CENTURY

On 17th October 2019, in Hamburg's imposing criminal justice building, a trial laden with extraordinary historical weight begins to unfold. Bruno Dey stands accused of being involved in a crime committed over seven decades ago: the murder of at least 5,230 inmates at Stutthof, the Nazi concentration camp in present-day Poland. Only seventeen at the time, Dey was a member of the SS unit responsible for administering the camp. Though he concedes to his role as a guard, he adamantly denies responsibility for the killings. Through the lens of this riveting courtroom drama, Tobias Buck explores the trial's broader significance, both on a political and personal level, as he revisits the silence that surrounds his family's experience during the Nazi period - and his German grandfather's role and responsibility. Is it right to prosecute Bruno Dey more than seven decades after he stood guard at Stutthof, and, perhaps more importantly, what might we have done in his place?
