Top Photo: The DVD cover for Andrzej Munk’s unusual and controversial 1962 Holocaust drama, “Passenger.” The film focuses not on the Jewish victims, but on the relationship between two women at Auschwitz: a Polish prisoner and her guard, who meet up by chance after the war. I screened this for my own students in Prague as a way of illustrating how the Holocaust was interpreted locally in the early years. The verdict: they hated it.
