Summary:
"Chronicles a small event of the Holocaust in the closing days of WW II in the Austrian border town of Rechnitz. In March 1945, with the Red Army closing in, 180 Hungarian Jews, spared from Auschwitz to serve as slave laborers, were murdered en-masse one night in a drunken orgy by German and Austrian revelers. Holocaust survivor Isador Sandorffy wants to find the location of the mass grave in order to give these Jews a proper burial, but the people of Rechnitz present wrong clues, misinformation, and self-righteous indignation in their objection to the search.--Container.
