THE JEWISH NAZI?

A staggering story of secrets and lies, identity and family…One Holocaust survivor. Four false identities. Two fake reunions…

The Jewish Nazi? tells the remarkable story of a Jewish child who survives the Holocaust as the Nazi’s youngest soldier, hides his shocking secret in Australia for 50 years, has had four false identities, been wrongly 'reunited' with two long-lost families and now – thanks to a DNA breakthrough – discovers his true identity in the twilight of his life.

This is a story which has been told before but this documentary goes much further and discovers that what has been revealed before isn't actually the true story. The Jewish Nazi? uncovers the true story.
