FINAL ACCOUNT is an urgent portrait of the last living generation of everyday people to participate in Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. Over a decade in the making, the film raises vital, timely questions about authority, conformity, complicity and perpetration, national identity, and responsibility, as men and women ranging from former SS members to civilians in never-before-seen interviews reckon with — in very different ways — their memories, perceptions and personal appraisals of their own roles in the greatest human crimes in history.
“An invaluable documentary that hears the reflections of former soldiers, guards and prison camp workers…” Chicago Sun-Times
“The ringing message throughout ‘Final Account’ comes from the famous quote attributed to Edmund Burke, ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.'” CNN.com
