This is the true story of Freddy and Walter, two young Slovak Jews, who were deported to Auschwitz in 1942. On 10 April 1944, after meticulous planning and with the help and the resilience of their inmates, they manage to escape. While the inmates they had left behind courageously stand their ground against the Nazi officers, the two men are driven on their way by the hope that their evidence could save lives and start trying to compile a detailed report about the systematic genocide at the camp. However, with Nazi propaganda and international liaisons still in place, their account seems to be too harrowing to believe.
The Auschwitz Report is part of The Film Agency’s Social Media and Digital Marketing deal with Spanish distributor Karma Films for which we are handling the digital strategy and asset locker of every new release. Directed by Peter Bebjak, this film was selected as the Slovak entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 93rd Academy and was released in Spanish cinemas by Karma in March 2021.
