Synopsis
How are we to comprehend the horror of the Nazi death camps? How are we to recall the unbelievable attrocities wrought in spaces that now look for tranquil and innocuos? "What remains of the reality of these camps - despised by those who made them, incomprehensible to those who suffered here...We can only show you the shell, the shadow." Resnais' stirring documentary essay deals with memory fragments and shadows fromt he past, seeking to salvage these historical traces from oblivion.
