85 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the explosive novel by Vassilis Vassilikos, COSTA-GAVRAS' Academy award winning masterpiece presents a controversial yet fictionalized account of the events surrounding the assassination of democratic Greek politician Gregoris Lambrakis in 1963. When a liberal politician is murdered during a peace demonstration, certain high-powered right wing figures make a concerted effort to not only conceal their involvement but ultimately cover up the murder in a cunning conspiracy. Jean-Louis Trintignant stars as the investigating magistrate who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth, indict the assassins and ultimately deliver justice and restore hope to the people. Also featuring Yves Montand and Irene Papas, Z is a landmark film, notorious for its dark satirical view of Greek politics, and capturing the sensitivity and outrage that rocked the status quo. Never before has a film created such a political stir." -- Container

On one side, Kurt Gerstein, a real-life chemist and SS officer, supplied the death camps with zyklon B while he tirelessly denounced the crimes and alerted the Allies, the Pope, the Germans and their churches at his family's and his own risk. On the other, Ricardo Fontana, a young Jesuit, a fictitious character who represents all the priests who had the heart to struggle against savagery, often paying for their courage with their lives. Countless priests, some known, others anonymous, who simply were not content to live with the silence of their church's hierarchy."--IMDb
