Professor Clement Olins attends a spiritual retreat at Auschwitz while planning to research a poet who survived the camp. Gradually, he confronts the horrors of the past as well as a family secret that links him to those horrors.
Critique
A complex and philosophical look at the still unresolved legacy of the Holocaust, at survivorship, the role of the Catholic Church and the ongoing divisive questions and reactions to such a horrible event.
