Son of Saul, directed by Laszlo Nemes

Winner of the 2016 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Son of Saul follows a Hungarian Jewish prisoner (Gez Rohig) in Auschwitz who works as a Sonderkommando, participating as a cog in the Nazis’ extermination machine. In a haunting exploration of the struggle to maintain one’s humanity in the midst of so much killing, Saul is determined to give the body of a young boy a proper Jewish burial.

Amy Simon (William and Audrey Farber Chair in Holocaust Studies, MSU) and Ken Walzer (History Professor Emeritus, MSU) will introduce the film, provide comments at the conclusion, and then lead a discussion about the film.
