Not all were murderers
28 February 2019 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

The title of this film is very clear: during the Second World War jewish people and also other persons persecuted by the Nazi government lived in the unterground, helped and protected by German who don't agree with the nazi regime. The film is based on the memories of Michael Degen and he and his mother could escape from the fatal deportations. Not all were murderers is an excellent dramatic film !!
