Banned for more than forty years in Czechoslovakia, this drama is an invaluable primary source document of history and an artistic reckoning with the horrors of its age. Director Alfréd Radok, a concentration camp survivor, used his own real life experiences to tell this story of a family— and a nation torn apart by the Nazi occupation.
