Lars Kraume‘s The People vs. Fritz Bauer (2016) movie trailer and movie poster star Rüdiger Klink, Burghart Klaußner, Andrej Kaminsky, Sebastian Blomberg, and Pierre Shrady. The People vs. Fritz Bauer‘s plot synopsis: “Germany, 1957. Attorney General Fritz Bauer (Klaußner) receives crucial evidence on the whereabouts of SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann. The lieutenant colonel, responsible for the mass deportation of the Jews, is allegedly hiding in Buenos Aires. Bauer, himself Jewish, has been trying to take crimes from the Third Reich to court ever since his return from Danish exile, but with no success so far due to the fierce German determination to repress its sinister past. Because of his distrust in the German justice system, Fritz Bauer contacts the Israeli secret service Mossad, and, by doing so, commits treason. Bauer is not seeking revenge for the Holocaust—he is concerned with the German future.”

I’ve read The Witness, Mother Night, watched both versions of The Debt, and have seen numerous films about the aftermath of World War II.  The People vs. Fritz Bauer seems more in line with The Debt than say Nuremberg. The protagonist in this film seems dauntless in his pursuit.

The People vs. Fritz Bauer also stars Arndt Schwering-Sohnrey, Daniel Krauss, Ronald Zehrfeld, and Michael Schenk.
