About this event

Please join us online for an exclusive panel discussion hosted by Dr Simon Holloway, featuring the director of Getting Away with Murder(s), David Wilkinson.

Although many spoke of justice in the aftermath of the Holocaust, the overwhelming majority of perpetrators never saw the inside of a courtroom. Some of those who stood trial were acquitted, while many of those who were found guilty only served brief sentences, ending their lives in comfort and relative obscurity. While a few committed individuals endeavoured to seek out and prosecute former war criminals, a growing popular indifference made the exacting of justice increasingly difficult.

In this live webinar, Simon will engage in discussion with David Wilkinson, whose new film – Getting Away with Murder(s) – explores the desperate attempts made by individuals and organisations to bring perpetrators of genocide to justice, and the ways in which the justice system ultimately failed. Joining us in conversation will be Professor Mary Fulbrook, whose recent book Reckonings explores the complex history of postwar justice, and Philip Rubenstein: former director of the UK’s All-Party Parliamentary War Crimes Group.

Getting Away with Murder(s) is available in Australia on 7Plus. It contains some graphic footage.
