The true story of Andries Riphagen, one of Holland’s most notorious criminals during the Second World War.
Rather than being a story about a hero, a noble deed or a victim, Riphagen is a story of a perpetrator, a man who made himself rich through black-market trading in goods left behind by the Jews, and by tracking down and blackmailing Jews in hiding. He was to blame for the deaths of at least 200 people, but was never convicted.
