The Wehrmacht-Exhibition, which was shown in eleven major cities in Germany between 1999 and 2004 and was visited by more than 500,000 attendants, challenged ordinary Germans to rethink what their fathers and grandfathers did during the war. Whereas most had been led to believe that the cold-blooded murder of civilians had been a crime of a minority of officers, for the first time Germans saw photos and footage of ordinary soldiers gleefully tormenting and executing civilians on the Eastern front. The nation was shaken, and large protests were organized by those who believed the evidence was manufactured.

In The Unknown Soldier, director Michael Verhoeven (The Nasty Girl) interviews historians and experts, including those who allege or deny the crimes, and filmed in the killing fields of Ukraine and White Russia.

"Both chilling and fascinating. Impressive." - The New York Times


"Ranks with The Sorrow and the Pity as a superb examination of national identity in relation to Nazism."
- Cineaste
