The Hangman

Half a century after the trial of the "architect of the Holocaust," we are introduced to Shalom Nagar, the former prison guard ordered to operate the gallows that brought Adolf Eichmann’s life to an end. Now 75, the Yemenite Jewish man tells the story of his burdened conscience on camera for the first time, sharing a unique perspective from the margins of Israeli society. Suffused with footage from an immense historical archive, The Hangman was awarded the prize for best documentary at the Haifa International Film Festival in 2010.
