East of War

Rating:No Rating
Release Date:January 1, 1996
Running time:113 minutes
Director:Ruth Beckermann

Description: Former soldiers who were part of the notorious Wehrmacht during WW II relieve their experiences while visiting a Viennese exhibition that presents many of the horrible atrocities committed by the soldiers on the Eastern Front. While documentary director Ruth Beckermann questions them about their reactions and reminiscences, the soldiers speak freely and often argue with themselves about the events. Some are sorry for their brutality, while others rationalize such acts as shooting POWs, raping women and butchering Jewish people as part of what soldiers were expected to do.~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
