About

In The Body Collector, we follow investigative journalist Hans Knoop, editor in chief of the newspaper ‘De Telegraaf’. Knoop slowly becomes personally involved in the hunt for the untouchable ex-Nazi and war criminal, Pieter Menten. Menten lives a lavish life in a villa close to Amsterdam, when he decides to auction off part of his famous art collection. When he announces this in a national newspaper, the news is picked up by Chaviv Kanaan, a journalist from Israel. Kanaan accuses Menten of the execution of many Jews, including several family members of his, in the Polish villages of Podhorodce and Uricz.

Kanaan gets in contact with Hans Knoop and informs him that Menten, in 1943, shipped three train carriages, filled with stolen art, to the Netherlands, which he then turned into his personal collection. From that moment, the hunt for the truth in the ‘Menten’ files is born. Knoop is determined to uncover the truth about the ex-Nazi’s dark past, but Menten refuses to go down quietly and without a fight.
