For International Holocaust Remembrance Week, BAYT Hosts The Canadian Film Premiere Screening of A Riveting Documentary With An Unlikely Title: The Good Nazi
TORONTO, CANADA, January 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Multi-award winning film makers Simcha Jacobovici and Ric Bienstock to present the Canadian Premiere Screening of Associated Producers’ (AP) latest documentary, The Good Nazi. It’s a film with an unexpected hero – a Nazi major. The Screening is on Saturday, January 19th at 7:30pm at Beth Avraham Yoseph of Toronto Congregation, 613 Clark Avenue West, Thornhill, Ontario, L4J 5V3. Tickets are available to the public: https://www.bayt.ca/event/the-good-nazi.html.
The Good Nazi tells the story of Major Karl Plagge, a Schindler-type German who, during the Second World War, saved hundreds of Jews in Lithuania. He accomplished this by creating a “forced labor camp” called “HKP” so as to protect Jewish men, women and children from the murderous SS.
HKP is the only Holocaust site in Europe that has not been destroyed or turned into a museum. It’s now slated for demolition, to make way for urban renewal. Before that happens a team of American and Canadian scientists converge on the place. They use ground-penetrating radar (GPR) in order to identify the mass grave of the Jews that were murdered by the SS and the secret hiding places – in the walls and in the ground – of the Jews who were saved by Plagge. A survivor, who hid in one of those secret spaces as a child, joins the scientists. Shot on location at HKP, The Good Nazi weaves the stories of Major Karl Plagge, the scientists and the survivors.
Co-director Ric Bienstock says: “The generation of Holocaust survivors is almost gone and Holocaust denial is on the rise. The time to watch this important film is now.”
Co-producer Simcha Jacobovici says: “The film demonstrates that even in humanity’s darkest hour, you can still be human – by doing the right thing.”
The Good Nazi was produced in Canada for VisionTV by Toronto-based Associated Producers (AP). AP is one of the world’s leading producers of non-scripted films. AP has garnered over 100 international awards for its documentaries, including a DuPont Award from Columbia University School of Journalism, two Alfred R.

Both Ric Bienstock and Simcha Jacobovici have been honored with Canada’s highest recognition in broadcast journalism, the “Gordon Sinclair Award”.
