National Geographic has acquired the global rights, excluding the UK and Ireland, to “Avenging Evil.”
The documentary tells the story of a small group of Holocaust survivors who attempted in 1946 to carry out the indiscriminate murder of six million Germans as retribution for the six million Jews killed by the Nazis in World War II.
The film features the testimony of the last surviving members of the group, who are now in their 90s.
Also featured is Chaim Miller, a soldier in the British Army’s Jewish Brigade, who was part of a vigilante group that tried to assassinate alleged SS soldiers in hiding.
