The Triumph of Evil
In the closing months of the second world war the Nazis were determined to exterminate all remaining prisoners in their infamous concentration camps. They were planning to destroy all evidence of their atrocities before the allied armies reached the camps.
In a race against time, Swedish aristocrat, Count Bernadotte has to 'deal with the devil' when he enters into negotiation with SS leader Heinrich Himmler in a last minute attempt to liberate thousands of prisoners and take them to safety in Sweden. His experience demonstrates the truth of the old adage that the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is that good men do nothing.
