Review of  “One Step to Freedom”


  In 1938, Austria had been annexed by Nazi Germany and Switzerland closed its borders for Jewish refugees, essentially forming as a death sentence for thousands. However, not all Swiss officials subscribed to this inhuman order. ‘One Step to Freedom’ centers on the story of Paul Grüninger, the St. Gallen police commander who put not only his career, but also his life on the line by disregarding orders and allowing all Jews to enter the country, most of them under the cover of night and in danger of being shot by Austrian border guards.
