Wall Of Silence

In March 1945, with the Red Army closing in, Hungarian Jews, spared from Auschwitz to serve as Slave laborers, were murdered en-masse one night in a drunken orgy by German and Austrian revelers after one of their many parties. In the movie the basic truth forms the background of a "Cat and Mouse" game between Holocaust survivor Isador Sandorffy, who wants to find the location of the mass grave in order to give these Jews a proper burial, and the people of Rechnitz who give wrong clues object to the search.
