Vrba: an actor who recited its text.
"This film is a fantastic repetition" (L'Autre Journal, May 1985, p. 48); "The strength of this film is not in showing what took place -- in fact it refrains from doing that -- but in showing the possibility of what took place" (André Glucksmann, Le Droit de vivre [The Right to Live], February-March 1986, p. 21). The director worked to make the filmgoer believe what he wanted him to believe.
Vrba became known for having escaped from the camp in April 1944, at the height of the Holocaust, and for having co-written a detailed report about the mass murder that he said was taking place there. It is amazing that this Jude saw things that neither Sam Pivnik or Pierre Berg saw at the camp, both who worked on the ramps at Birkenau; both were there at the time of Jude Vrba. Vrba is of course a liar. There are many other Kapos, some female who worked at Birkenau and knew of no gassing situations or events and are surprised when the story comes up. Of course these one would not be selected for 9 and a half hour (((movies))) like Shoah.
