In this murder mystery documentary, three brothers, with the help of a decorated private detective in Melbourne, Australia, investigate a rumored family secret. Was their father, Boris, a suburban watchmaker and family man, Holocaust survivor and Jewish World War II partisan leader actually involved in revenge killings of Nazis in 1950s Australia?

After World War II, the largest number of Holocaust survivors who did not go to Israel started life anew in Australia. So too did nearly 4,000 Nazis. Featuring cold case police reports, government files, and home movies, Revenge opens up a secret history of Nazi fugitives, Cold War spies, covert Jewish vigilante networks, and government conspiracies. Ultimately, the film asks a fundamental question: Is it ever justified to take the law into your own hands?

Directed by Danny Ben-Moshe, Australia, 2023, 101 minutes, in English.

This New England premiere features a Q&A with Brandeis University professor Laura Jockusch, author of “Jewish Honor Courts: Revenge, Retribution and Reconciliation in Europe and Israel after the Holocaust.”
