Retribution

For most Europeans, the final victory at the end of World War II was a happy, hope-filled event. For the Jews, however, the hope was overcome by a traumatic sense of mourning and loss. Some felt an irrepressible urge to settle the score. Bent on vengeance, they organized into small cells for just this purpose. Soldiers from the Second Regiment of the British Army’s Jewish Brigade even created an “Executioners Squad.” Dressed in British uniforms, they captured and tried dozens of Nazis in hasty field courts. They called themselves the “Avengers,” and their most deadly squad was Nekama (Revenge), numbering about sixty Jews, including former partisans and other “professional survivors”. The group made its way to Germany to carry out large-scale, complex acts of vengeance against the perpetrators of the Holocaust.
