Wiesenthal: The Nazi Hunter

One-man play by Tom Dugan Wiesenthal, affectionately called “The Jewish James Bond,” recounts, like a gripping spy thriller, how he solved his most sensational cases, unmasking such notorious villains as Franz Stangl, Franz Murer, and the infamous “Architect of the Holocaust,” Adolph Eichmann.

About the event

On the day of his retirement, the famed “Nazi Hunter” Simon Wiesenthal welcomes one final group of students to his Jewish Documentation Center in Vienna, Austria. With warmth, wit, and surprising humor this charming man, known as “The Conscience of the Holocaust,” recounts the remarkable story of how, after cheating death at the hands of Hitler’s dreaded S.S, he dedicated his life to tracking down and bringing to justice the greatest mass murderers in human history. It’s time for this 20th century hero to finally leave the war behind and go home to his wife Cyla, but not before warning his young friends that, although progress has been made since the dark days of Nazi Germany, the human savage still lurks just below the wafer-thin veil of civilization.
