Synopsis
Kapo by Dan Setton (1999), awarded an Emmy Best Documentary prize and screened in Czech theatres as well, is a complex portrayal of Jewish collaboration, seen in the context of trials with former Nazi camp leaders and their assistants in Izrael in 1950s and 1960s. It asks after the reasons of collaboration, after the situations in which people had to decide, and includes both the perspective of the accused and the victims. It asks the basic question – How to understand the accused? Is it possible to judge them? To what extent?
