Event description
ASHCAN is untold story of a secret prison in Luxembourg where the main Nazi leaders were detained after the Allied victory in May 1945.

About this Event

The Embassy of Luxembourg, as the Chairing country of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance 2020, invites you to the first screening in Switzerland of the movie "Ashcan - the secret prison".

"ASHCAN is a feature documentary theatrical fiction.

ASHCAN tells the untold story of the secret prison where the main Nazi leaders were detained after the Allied victory on 8 May 1945. It was run by the US Army at Mondorfles-Bains in Luxembourg: 72 prisoners such as Göring, Dönitz, Keitel, Rosenberg, Ley, Frank, Streicher, Seyss-Inquart, Lutz von Krosigk, von Papen and others. It was the murky period between the end of the war and the Nuremberg Trials.

The Allies had won the Second World War, but they knew almost nothing of the Nazi regime that had bathed Europe in fire and blood. The film immerses the audience in the heart of the Nazi Regime and its leaders, gathered in one place by the US military intelligence. Foregoing any use of force or torture, a handful of young American officers obtained extraordinary information about the conquered regime from some of the worst criminals against humanity.

The film will unfold the information preserved secret to this day."
