Son of Saul
The critically acclaimed Holocaust drama Son of Saul is a strong portrayal of Auschwitz-Birkenau, October 1944.
Saul Ausländer is a member of the Sonderkommando, a group of Jewish prisoners who are forced to help the Nazis during mass executions. During the clean-up of the gas chamber, one day he finds a young boy who he claims is his own son. While the Sonderkommando is planning to revolt, Saul decides to do the impossible: to save the child's body from the flames, find a rabbi who can read the mourning prayer Kaddish and offer the boy a dignified burial.
Son of Saul is László Neme's debut film and it has won both the Oscar and the Golden Globe for best foreign language film.
