Plot Synopsis

Directed and produced by Daniel Sivan and Yossi Bloch, THE DEVIL NEXT DOOR is the true story of John Demjanjuk, a retired Ukrainian-American autoworker living a peaceful life with his family in the 1980s in Seven Hills, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland. When a group of Holocaust survivors identify Demjanjuk's photograph as "Ivan the Terrible" -- a notoriously cruel Nazi death camp guard who tortured and killed nearly one million Jewish prisoners during World War II -- Demjanjuk's American dream is shattered and he is extradited to Israel to stand trial for crimes against humanity. Israel is transfixed as a media frenzy erupts around the trial in Jerusalem, the nation plunged into trauma and fascination by "the trial of the century." As the case uncovers dark corners of memory and the horrors of war, the Demjanjuk case becomes a race against time for the defendant and his alleged victims. On Monday, November 4, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire five-episode limited series.
