Synopsis

Focusing on the struggle Jews faced after being released from World War II concentration camps--particularly pointing out the absurd irony of Jewish survivors being housed in "displaced persons camps," often on the same sites as death camps, surrounded by barbed wire and not allowed to leave, and mixed with ex-Nazi collaborators because camp assignment was done by country of origin.
