Each of the women profiled recounts, with varying degrees of intensity, the difficulties in creating a "normal" life in a world where the concept of "home" can no longer fully resonate.
Something of a follow-up to his 2007 documentary, "Swimming in Auschwitz," Jon Kean's "After Auschwitz" examines life after liberation with similarly incisive results.
"Go home," they were told. But where, in the words of one of the film's subjects, was home? Where do you start, and where do you end up - not just literally, but emotionally - after such an experience?
A moving portrait of how life goes on.
Jon Kean, the director, chose the material wisely and doesn't shy from severe images. He and his team also have good ears for anecdotes.
A powerful testament to individual humanity emerging from inhuman horrors.
After Auschwitz: The Story of Six Women is beautifully shot, crisply edited and scored, and directed with purpose and clarity. The documentary is an affecting, tender, and moving work of filmmaking.
For the death camp survivors we meet in the brisk, engaging, and sneakily profound After Auschwitz, the day of liberation was the best and worst day of their lives.
The timing is excellent for Jon Kean's documentary featuring six women who entered the Nazi camp at ages 18 to 23 and made new lives in America, from a fashion designer to a Hollywood deli owner.
Lively and moving documentary about six women who survived the Holocaust to live fruitful lives that serve to defy the Nazis' extermination plans.
Six women, among the last survivors of the Auschwitz concentration camp, tell stories of their shattering experiences in that camp and how they prevailed to the present day.
Covers familiar ground, but stands out as one of the most upbeat Holocaust documentaries ever.
