“Wiesenthal” (directed by Jenny Sullivan) is set on the day of the famed “Nazi Hunter’s” retirement while he recounts how after cheating death at the hands of Hitler’s dreaded S.S. he dedicated his life to tracking down and bringing to justice nearly 1,100 fugitive war criminals, including Franz Stangl, the Treblinka death camp commandant; Karl Silberbauer, the S.S. officer who imprisoned Anne Frank; and the infamous “Architect of the Holocaust” Adolph Eichmann.
