Structured as a who done it documentary thriller; Once a Nazi is Adalbert Lallier’s tragic story, a man haunted by his connection to the most infamous group of mass murderers of the twentieth century – the notorious Waffen SS. Today Lallier wrestles with the demons in his soul; a passive participant still trying to solicit forgiveness from a society that is both repelled and fascinated by his alleged complicity.
Due to his having witnessed the murder of seven concentration camp prisoners; the film juxtaposes an ex-soldier’s crisis of conscience with his dramatic testimony in the last Nazi war crimes tribunal fifty-five years later. His current dilemma speaks to the very heart of human forgiveness; a timeless tale of morality using the utter despondency of World War II as a starting point.
