Languages of publication
The author analyses the ways Holocaust was presented in Polish films that were made during the existence of the Polish Film School. Using the examples of films, the majority of which remains in the shadow of the great „canon” of the Polish school, Haltof attempts to place the image of Holocaust presented in them within the artistic, historical and political context. The author analyses films such as Andrzej Wajda’s Samson, and Generation, Ewa and Czeslaw Petelski’s Barker, Stanislaw Rozewicz’s Birth Certificate, Jerzy Zarzycki’s White Bear, and Andrzej Munk’s The Passenger, as well as two short films: Andrzej Brzozowski’s By the Railway Track, and Janusz Morgenstern’s Ambulance. By analyzing them, the author writes about how ways of connecting and disconnecting the Polish and Jewish fate, the tragedy of children that were victims of the Holocaust, about the attitudes of Poles towards Jews seeking help, and of the film attempts to find the psychological dimension of the relationship between the oppressed and the oppressors.
