  • This lyrical and graphic documentary--one of the first cinematic reflections on the Holocaust's horror--has deeply affected film's treatment of the Holocaust ever since, including Spielberg's SCHINDLER'S LIST. Documentarian Alain Resnais contrasts 1955 footage of abandoned concentration camps' quiet, empty buildings with black-and-white footage shot there in 1944; the film's overwhelming resonance comes in its allowing the haunting images to stand on their own: a grainy, back-lit hill of human hair, a pyramid of shoes.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Poetic, clear-eyed, calm yet harrowing..."

    "Resnais' exposure of Nazi atrocities is still chilling, and his emphasis on the need to remember gives the film a continuing relevance."
