Walter Manoschek, 'If that's so then I'm a Murderer': Film and Discussion

Date: 21 February 2013 Time: 16:00-18:30

Venue: Fylde, Lecture Theatre 1 (LT 1 A15)

On 29 March 1945, in Burgenland, three SS men shot 60 Hungarian Jewish forced labourers.

One of the alleged killers was SS Sergeant Adolf Storms. Storms was never held to account for this act.

63 years later Walter Manoschek succeeded in interviewing Storms.

In conversations with him, together with leaders of the Hitler Youth and Jewish survi-vors of the massacre, Manoscheck reconstructed this almost forgotten crime, addressing questions about the displacement of responsibility.
