Reviews

  • Jerusalem F.F. 2013

    “Bureau 06 is an energetic, well-researched examination of the police unit assigned to interrogate Adolf Eichmann before his trial. This documentary takes us behind the scenes of this dramatic historical moment in dynamic and surprisingly moving fashion”

    Jury Statement
  • Sergio Carmona

    “A moving and educational cinematic experience. The film captures the tragedy and horror while still finding room to inspire and move. It is profoundly moving, profoundly shocking and profoundly important”.

    Sergio Carmona / Sun-Sentinel, USA)
  • Amy Kronish

    This film is a superbly researched historical document which succeeds in integrating the emotions and personal hardships of those who worked in the bureau, and even touches on some of the terrible stories that they uncovered in their research.”
