Post war representations of the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia

In a truly insightful talk, Dr Jan Láníček will discuss early post-World War 2 film representation of the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia and other countries in the region. Shortly after 1945, several filmmakers prepared films depicting the fate of the Jews, but also attempted to address pertinent questions about the behaviour of local population and antisemitism. Dr Jan Láníček will draw upon examples like Alfred Radok’s Distant Journey (Daleká cesta, 1948) and an unfinished film For One Life (1948-1949), pointing to similarities produced at that time in Germany, Poland and the Soviet Union.

Dr Jan Láníček is a Senior Lecturer in Modern European and Jewish History at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. He is currently completing a study of post-Holocaust judicial retribution in Czechoslovakia and also researches Jewish migration to Australia before World War 2.
