Nazi Hunters: Gestapo Chief

REENACTMENT: Serge Klarsfeld (played by Alex Palermo) discusses the kidnapping plan with Marco, Eli, David and Beate Klarsfeld (played by Eduardo Lassah, Edi Raffa, Daniel Braga and Angela Camara). Marco is a friend from University, Eli is a photographer who's mother died in Auschwitz and David is a doctor with judo skills that could prove to be useful in the kidnapping attempt
As Gestapo chief in Paris, Kurt Lischka was responsible for deporting 73,000 Jews and ordering the largest mass arrest in French history. Instead of serving time for his crimes after the war, a legal loophole allowed him to live openly in West Germany enraging Serge and Beate Klarsfeld, a husband-and-wife team of Nazi Hunters. Determined to bring him to justice, they plan a kidnapping that lands Beate in jail.
