Realism and magic in Czech Holocaust marriage
9 December 2003 | by (University of Sussex England) – See all my reviews

One of the first films about the Holocaust, this is set in the concentration camp of Theresienstadt (modern Terezin) about a marriage between a Jewish woman and a Czech gentile but with truly impressive filmic style which was much admired by Alain Resnais who reflected it in his 'Night and Fog'. There are parallels here with Lanzman's 'Un Vivant Qui Passe' also about Theresienstadt and Maetzig's German near contemporary film 'Ehe im Schatten' (marriage in the shadows) about a similar marriage. Alfred Radok is one of the great lost directors - part of the famous Laterna Magika of Prague - he was the victim not just of the Nazis but of the Communists.
