Getting Away With Murder(s) Q&A event screening with Director David Wilkinson
During the Holocaust almost 1 million people in 22 countries carried out the unprovoked murder of 11 million innocent men, women and children. 99% of those responsible were never prosecuted; most were never even questioned.
The Allies knew what their crime was, and where these people could be found – Germany, Austria, Italy, the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, and numerous countries in South America. However, after the late 1940s, almost nothing was done. Released to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of the sentencing of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg.
This film picks up where the IMT trial left off and director David Wilkinson asks the question – why were so many people actively permitted to get away with their crime(s)? Wilkinson’s journey takes him all over the UK, to Ireland, the USA, the killing fields of Lithuania, Latvia and the Czech Republic, to the infamous death camp Auschwitz – Birkenau in Poland, to Austria, France and, of course, Germany.
Presented in partnership with the Lake District Holocaust Project.

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 ★★★★
A powerful and important documentary.
Brian Viner DAILY MAIL ★★★★
