Journey to Justice tells the story of Howard Triest (1923 – 2016), a German Jew who fled Nazi Germany in 1939 when he was16 years old, returned as an American soldier and then served as an interpreter during the Nuremberg Trial. He came face-to-face with imprisoned Nazi leaders who were co-responsible for the death of six million Jews, including Howard’s parents at Auschwitz. At Nuremberg, Howard felt transformed, from victim to victor, and was able to reclaim parts of his German identity.

The documentary also tells the story of how Margot, Howard’s younger sister, was rescued from a detention camp in southern France just before her parents’ deportation. Margot then saved ten other children from the Nazis in her subsequent escape to Switzerland.

Journey to Justice was filmed in five countries and features extensive archival research and images, including historic film and photographs shot by Howard himself.

Howard passed away on May 11, 2016.
