Here is a first information about my new short animation - Moczarski's CaseIt is the story of Kazimierz Moczarski - a famous Polish journalist, a resistance officer  in occupied Poland during WW2, author of a book called Conversations with an Executioner.

 The film in a metaphorical way tells the story of his life and his encounter with a Nazi general - Jürgen Stroop, the liquidator of the Warsaw Ghetto.

I want to thank to all the artists who participated in the creation of this animation.

The film was produced by Fundacja im. Kazimierza i Zofii Moczarskich (Kazimierz and Zofia Moczarski Foundation) and subsidized by National Centre for Culture Poland.

The author of the music is Adam Brzozowski.


Here is more specific info about the whole story:

During WW2, Polish resistance officer Kazimierz Moczarski prepared an assassination attempt on SS General Jürgen Stroop. Stroop commanded the liquidation of the Warsaw Ghetto and the suppression of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, which led to the murder of Warsaw's Jews.

After the War ended, courts in Communist Poland sentenced them both to death. Awaiting execution, they were thrown together in the same prison cell. During this time, Moczarski was regularly tortured and interrogated by the secret police.

Stroop was hanged in 1952. 

In 1956, after the end of Stalinism, Moczarski was acquitted and rehabilitated. Moczarski later recorded his 9 month prison confrontation with Stroop in his book Conversations with an Executioner.
