The title of this film is an allusion to WG Sebald’s novel “Austerlitz” and refers to a scene in the story when the book’s protagonist (a Kindertransport refugee) thinks he sees his mother in the propaganda film made by the Nazis at Theresienstadt.

The film “Austerlitz” is a cinema-verite style production that uses static cameras to film the behaviour of visitors to the memorial sites at Sachsenhausen and Dachau.

Following the screening there will be a discussion between Dr Avril Alba and visiting scholar of Sydney Health Ethics/School of Public Health from Gemany, Dr Astrid Ley.

Limited seats available. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door on Sunday.
