Details

From The Auschwitz Chronicle is a series of five documentary films, which attempt to preserve and highlight the memory of this human tragedy that was the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Oświęcim. It also attempts to acquaint young people with it who are still forming their own view of the world. Fragments of testimonies, episodes from the chronicle form the basis for the narrative layer of the films.

There is no single universal truth about the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp. Each of the former inmates has their own unique truth, which may vary from the truth of their campmate from the neighbouring bunk.

Due to the way in which they are made, the films have the value of a historical source. Extracts from testimonies of former prisoners are read by narrators, a man and a woman. As a result, the related histories attain a cohesion and homogeneity, gripping the viewer with their content and building a level of emotion rarely encountered.

In the visual element of the films, the viewer confronts the actual places these events occurred, is taken to the camp today, and shown the photographs of the people whose stories are being told – whenever such photographs have survived. The images of people visiting the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial create a compelling context for these stories. The paintings and drawings shown in the films are not only informative; they frequently constitute the strongest element of the visual narration.

Please note this is a PAL version film!
