THE INTERROGATION is a landmark film in which an Israeli director gives voice to the perpetrator that is Rudolf Franz Ferdinand Höss, the longstanding commander of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
Based on the autobiography written by Höss, the film recreates the final interrogation of the infamous German before his execution.
In 1946, Höss was discovered by British troops in Gottrupel, Germany disguised as a gardener after his whereabouts were divulged by his wife.
She believed that the betrayal of her husband would result in their son’s safety.
Shortly afterward the former Auschwitz commandant was taken to the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg.
Later, he was handed over to the Supreme National Tribunal in Poland, which sentenced him to death by hanging.
It is during Höss’s time at the Supreme National Tribunal that he was interrogated in order to extract a perfect confession, and in which the setting of the film takes place.
