EXCLUSIVE: On Holocaust Memorial Day, and the anniversary of the liberation of Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, we can reveal the first English-language trailer for Holocaust drama The Auschwitz Report, Slovakia’s International Oscar entry.
Deadline recently featured the film in its International Contenders series.
Distributed stateside by Samuel Goldwyn Films, Peter Bebjak’s historical drama tells the true story of two imprisoned Slovak Jewish men, Rudolf Vrba and Wetzler, who escape Auschwitz and risk their lives to meticulously report the horrific reality of Nazi operations to the world.
