The Search for Mengele
Renowned actor, producer, and television personality David Frost serves as narrator and co-writer of this documentary examining the twilight years of notorious SS doctor Josef Mengele, who earned the nickname "Angel of Death" for the reprehensible experiments he conducted at Auschwitz, and took flight from Germany following World War II to avoid being charged with war crimes. For forty years following World War II, Mengele was one of the most wanted war criminals on the planet. Having fled to Italy, Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil after fighting ceased, Mengele successfully managed to elude his pursuers and avoid prosecution; ironically surviving to live out his final years in a secluded, multi-cultural Brazilian society. But why was Mengele never captured, and would it be possible for such a grim moment in human history to be repeated in the future? By traveling to ten countries around the world and speaking with the very people who knew Mengele best, the producers attempt to uncover the mystery of the war criminal most called a monster while inquiring as to how he eluded justice long enough to live out his golden years in relative comfort. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
