I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life and Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal

Simon Wiesenthal is a subject who invites hagiography, but this moving, well-structured documentary, commissioned by the Wiesenthal Center, steers clear of that pitfall. Director Richard Trank traces Wiesenthal's life from his childhood in a Ukrainian village to his experiences in a series of Nazi concentration camps to his career as the world's most dogged tracker of high-profile war criminals, including Adolf Eichmann and Josef Mengele. Incorporating fascinating archival footage and interviews with Wiesenthal's family members and colleagues, Trank demythologizes his subject, showing Wiesenthal's deep connection to his family and his unwavering sense of justice, most notably when he was being vilified in his native Austria. 105 min.
