In Condemned To Remember, Tomi travels to Germany to conclude his long quest to bring the convicted SS war criminal Hilde Michnia to account. In Poland and Slovakia, he confronts the ‘crisis of shame’ that obscures the scale of local ‘collusion’ with the Nazi extermination project.

Always he  puts himself into the shoes of the “new Jews” and discovers a strong common bond with refugees fleeing the hell that is Syria.
