Most Holocaust films end with these words: “You’re free. Go home,” the very words that survivors heard at liberation. But After Auschwitz is not a typical “Holocaust” film. It begins with these words, inviting audiences to experience what happened next. In watching the struggles of survival, the audience feels a searing connection to our current political climate, as history teaches us the vital role humanity plays in our hopes for greater understanding and compassion.
