Synopsis: Two days in the life of Saul Auslander, Hungarian prisoner working as a member of the Sonderkommando at one of the Auschwitz Crematoriums who, to bury the corpse of a boy he takes for his son, tries to carry out his impossible deed: salvage the body and find a rabbi to bury it. While the Sonderkommando is to be liquidated at any moment, Saul turns away of the living and their plans of rebellion to save the remains of a son he never took care of when he was still alive.
Genre: Drama, War




A gentle warm light shines on the face of a 40 year-old

looking man, as he walks in what seems to be a grove.

His name is SAUL AUSLANDER. He wears a white shirt under his +

dark jacket, with a half-hidden number on it: B-7005. On the +

back of his jacket, a red X is painted. He wears a flat +

civilian hat. He walks with determination, at a regular pace,

his lips tight. The trees around give some shelter from the

sun, birds sing amidst the branches.

He stops for a while and glances around, at some older people

around taking off their heavy winter coats, sitting on the

grass. The voices of children, calling for water, can be

heard. A YOUNG BOY stands on the side, carrying a water can. +

Sounds of branch cracking, of steps on the ground. Footsteps +

of many more people. Pieces of words can be heard, in a

continuous humming of different voices and languages.

Behind Saul, children play. Someone comes to him and talks to

him, he mumbles something, looks away and moves on.

Four other SONDERKOMMANDO PRISONERS pass Saul by. They all +

start instructing the civilians to get up and leave. The +

civilians are gathered in rows of 5, and pushed to the road. +

Three SOLDIERS appear on the side, waiting. +

Orders are shouted and the group starts advancing on the

slight slope of a dusty road.

The Sonderkommando prisoners accompany the civilians who +

carry suitcases, bundles, cans and other objects. Some people +

carry infants. We only catch glimpses of some of the faces +

and clothes. These are weary, slightly disorientated faces, +

most of them in dark-colored heavy clothes. +
