The Hunt for Nazis: The Real-Life Captures That Inspired The Debt

Updated August 22, 2011

John Madden’s THE DEBT tells the tale of a trio of Mossad agents who hunted down a wanted Nazi war criminal. We explore the stories of the many real-life Nazi war criminals who went into hiding after the war, and the people who tracked them down to bring them to justice.

The Debt's Hunt for Nazi Criminals

Rachel (Jessica Chastain) and David (Sam Worthington)

In THE DEBT, Nazi hunters — and Mossad agents — Rachel (Jessica Chastain), Stephan (Marton Csokas) and David (Sam Worthington) track down and capture Dieter Vogel, the Surgeon of Birkenau (Jesper Christensen). The events in John Madden’s film are fictional, but the story is grounded in reality. Only the names have been changed.
