Axel Corti's Childhood in the Holocaust in Austria Part 1

This wonderful filmmaker captures the increasing disaster of life in Austria as a Jew in the late 30's and 40's. It is part of a trilogy made with Georg Stefan Troller, called Where To and Back. This film was originally made for Austrian Television, and has since been released in 35MM. The setting is the day after Krystalnacht, and this extraordinary film (of 3) follows a youth's attempt to avoid deportation as he flies to Prague, then Marseilles, joining with a renegade German officer and other Jews. The pursuit and the escape gets worse and worse.

The second film is Santa Fe, following the arrival in NYC of a ship from Europe, and the Austrians try to make new lives.

The third film is Welcome In Vienna where one of the Austrians is an American soldier sent back to Austria to interrogate prisoners. This is the only one originally released for theatrical distribution (they all are now).

Armin Mueller-Stahl plays the Dachau escaped German officer who befriends two of the Austrians, and this is one of his great performances. But ALL the actors are perfect for their parts, their roles, the casting is exceptional.
