AFTER AUSCHWITZ Opening this Friday, May 4



In After Auschwitz, filmmaker Jon Kean examines the question, "What happens after surviving an unspeakable horror?" with six stories of remarkable women who survived the Holocaust and went on to build lives in the United States, but never truly found a place to call home. For survivors of the Holocaust, liberation was both an incredible moment and a devastating one. It marked the beginning of a life-long struggle. Most wanted to go home, but there was no home left in devastated post-war Europe. Many came to America and wanted to tell people about their experiences, but were silenced. "You're in America now, put it behind you" is what they were told. The women Kean follows became mothers and wives with successful careers, but never fully healed from the scars of the past.

Their stories show the indelible role immigrants and women played in the history of America during the second half of the 20th century, and they serve as our guides on an unbelievable journey - sometimes celebratory, sometimes heart-breaking, but always inspiring.

After Auschwitz is written, produced and directed by Jon Kean (Kill The Man; Swimming in Auschwitz) and executive produced by Oscar and Emmy-winning Michael Berenbaum (One Survivor Remembers; The Desperate Hours). David Charles and Marilyn Harran serve as co-producers.
