National Geographic takes global rights to “Avenging Evil”

National Geographic has taken global rights, excluding UK and Eire, to the feature documentary Avenging Evil.

Produced by London indie Caravan and Los Angeles-based Global Road Entertainment for Channel 4 in the UK, Avenging Evil (pictured) tells the story of a small group of Holocaust survivors in 1946 who attempted to carry out the indiscriminate murder of six million Germans as retribution for the six million Jews killed by the Nazis.

The film features the testimony of the last surviving members of the group, who are now in their 90s. Also featured is Chaim Miller, a soldier in the British Army’s Jewish Brigade, who was part of a vigilante group who tried to assassinate alleged SS soldiers in hiding.

The documentary’s executive producers are Caravan’s Dinah Lord and Matthew Barrett, and Global Road’s Phil Gurin and Tim Bock.

Avenging Evil was originally commissioned by Channel 4 with the title Holocaust: The Revenge and bowed in Britain to mark Holocaust Day 2018.
