“Here is an epic documentary investigation from director David Nicholas Wilkinson into something that could be called the great unpunishment…. A sombre, valuable film.” - Peter Bradshaw THE GUARDIAN ★★★★★

“…a huge, intellectually dense and often seething account of how so many perpetrators of the Holocaust and their collaborators remained unpunished…. this is compelling and provocative filmmaking.” - Kevin Maher THE TIMES ★★★★

To coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Nuremberg Trials, director David Wilkinson takes us on an eye-opening journey across the world for truth and justice in his documentary film Getting Away With Murder(s).

It is a cruel fact that almost 11 million innocent people were killed during the Holocaust by 1 million people across 22 countries – and a staggering number of those responsible were never prosecuted or even questioned after the Second World War.

Using eyewitness interviews from survivors, their descendants and from those at the trials, Wilkinson’s powerful film asks the question why so many people were allowed to get away with no repercussions for their actions.

Rated number 17 of The Guardian 50 Best Films of 2021 in the UK.
