Inhalt

The Child I Never Was
Between 1962 and 1966, four schoolboys were abused, tortured and killed in Germany′s Ruhr District. Their tormentor, Juergen Bartsch, was fifteen at the time of his first crime; nineteen when he was caught. His mesmerizing confession, which frames the re-enactment of his crimes and the circumstances through which they came about, forms the heart of this journey into the dark reaches of a troubled mind. Bartsch′s cold and severe adoptive parents, his terror-filled years at a Catholic boarding school, the discovery of his sexual attraction to boys, his desperate longing to never have to grow up – these and other emotionally charged aspects of his life unfold before us, step by troubling step.

Ultimately, however, it is the outward normality of his everyday life that underscores the horror of his deeds. Based the Paul Moor′s book Juergen Bartsch: Opfer und Taeter and original letters and statements by Bartsch himself, The Child I Never Was paints the chilling portrait of a murderer who craves our sympathy, a charming beast who strikes an unsettling chord in our hearts...
