This is the sort of propaganda that pervades Netflix these days.

Mildly interesting and way to drawn out .

As someone who has never heard of this person, this was a very fascinating and a great documentary.

Waste of time.

I enjoyed it .

I found this documentary riveting and educational and thought-provoking; among other things you can learn from it, it sheds much light on the need to pursue justice, no matter the twists and turns in that pursuit that result from human foible or corruption.

I found this show to be very interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The reason I gave it 7 stars is because at times it was slow, and at other times they should have explored things that they briefly discussed such as the background of John Demjanjuk's first lawyer.

Crucial points of this story are mistaken so it is far from being documentary and is very close to being a propaganda movie.

Suspenseful and captivating .

The atrocities of of the death camps were and still are mind boggling and in a realm of human cruelty that are difficult to comprehend.

One of the most intriguing series about the Nazi's.

Netflix really know's how to produce a gripping documentary with high production value.

Just watch it, it's accurate and very fascinating!

This documentary is so intense, so well put together, so intriguing.

The timeline was also confusing at times, often I had no idea what year it was or how long it had passed since the beginning of the case.


The Devil Next Door is Fascinating and Gripping.

It was one of the most fascinating stories of my lifetime.

Worth Watching .

Mildly interesting story but way to drawn out and repetitive.
