"You're free. Go home."
Most Holocaust films end with these words, the very words that survivors heard at liberation. To an American, liberation sounds like it should have been a great day. For survivors, liberation from the camps was the beginning of a life long struggle. After Auschwitz is a "Post-Holocaust" documentary that follows six extraordinary women, capturing what it means to move from tragedy and trauma towards life. These women all settled in Los Angeles and became "Americans" but they never truly found a place to call home. What makes the story so much more fascinating is how these women saw, interpreted and interacted with the changing face of America in the second half of the 20th century.
