With Mr René Zeizig, an 80 year old man, son of one of the seven Jews who were executed at Rillieux la Pape, we will follow the different stages of Paul Touvier’s trial.
Going beyond the actual present day affair, Mr Zeizig takes us back to the fascinating history of the end of the World War II and its militia. He leads us through his father’s story as well as his own.
This film is also the opportunity for a historical voyage to understand the characteristics of the development of anti-semitism in French society from the human rights proclamation right up to the 1940’s.
