An unprecedented investigation of the global search for the 20th Century's greatest criminals. Following the atrocities of World War II, the international community declared the Nazi party a criminal organization, and pledged to prosecute and punish those individuals responsible for the genocide of innocent individuals. During the Nuremberg Trials, approximately 1000 Nazi officials were convicted of crimes against humanity, but tens of thousands evaded prosecution - by concealing their war records, assuming false identities, fleeing Europe, or serving various Allied countries as spies or scientists. < br />Thousands of Nazi criminals are presumed to be alive. This feature length film explores how governments and institutions failed to uphold their own laws, and forced individuals to act independently - and provoke them into belated and anemic action. Featuring portraits of the men and women who conducted investigations and led manhunts over six decades, this film provides a definitive account of efforts - official and unofficial - to locate, prosecute, and punish fugitive Nazis around the world. Narrated by Candice Bergen.
