Respite

(Aufschub), GER 2007, directed by Harun Farocki, 40 min, rated: from 12 years up

In 1944, thousands of Jews waited in the Dutch Nazi transit camp Westerbork to be deported to Auschwitz, Sobibór and other concentration camps. Before his murder, one of the inmates, cameraman Rudolf Breslauer, was commissioned to film everyday life in Westerbork. Harun Farocki assembled the material a good sixty years later and reflects on the portrayal of victims and the significance of images.
