L’exécution Du Traître À La Patrie Ernst S.

  • Switzerland
Audio Tracks 

The soldier Ernst S. was one of seventeen “traitors” shot in Switzerland during World War II, accused of collaborating, stealing guns to sell to Germany. Very controversial when released, this film, made after a book by journalist Niklaus Meienberg, weaves a detailed biography of its subject, which it uses to question the hypocrisy of a country.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
