Swiss filmmaker Erich Schmid?s 1995 documentary examines the life of Peter Surava (nee Hirsch), an editor whose attempts to report Nazi atrocities were suppressed by the Swiss government. While hardly dazzling cinema—having the elderly Surava reenact the past on location seems a little hokey—it has a chilling story to tell. Though there was no evidence he was Jewish, Surava suffered from the accusation in a then-anti-Semitic Switzerland, and his periodical, the Nation, was repeatedly censored. Even photographs of Nazi murders were deemed “atrocity propaganda” that would damage the reputation of a “friendly power”—the German Reich. Surava was imprisoned as Germany was being defeated and lived in secret for decades after the war: this film finally dispels the myth of Swiss neutrality.
