After the Crash - The Fateful Flight of the US Bomber "Strange Cargo"
Gejagt und Gerettet
The documentary accompanies the two historians as they research and clear up the murders of the «Strange Cargo« crew. They found documents in American, German and Austrian archives that allowed them to reconstruct the plane's flight, its crash and the subsequent events in great detail. Documented interrogations of perpetrators and their associates, interviews with witnesses who are still alive and research on location reveal how such lynchings occurred. The story of Mac D. Moore and his 17-yearold saviour Heinrich Lederbauer is unique in that it proves that people were not forced to commit murder. There were other options. There are no excuses... The two main protagonists relate the events of the time in front of the camera. Heinrich Lederbauer is still alive. Moore passed away in January 2019. His memories were recorded before his death.
