Alfred Landecker Holocaust Memorial Event
Film screening of ‘The Zone of Interest’ followed by a panel discussion
The Alfred Landecker Holocaust Memorial Event is delivered in partnership with the Alfred Landecker Foundation to mark United Nations Holocaust Remembrance Day. The event is an integral part of the Alfred Landecker Programme at the Blavatnik School of Government, which investigates the rights and interests of minorities and vulnerable groups, exploring, in particular, the values and institutions that underpin democratic society.
The Zone of Interest is a 2023 historical drama film written and directed by Jonathan Glazer, loosely based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Martin Amis. A co-production between the United States, the United Kingdom, and Poland, the film centers on Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Höss and his wife as they strive to build a dream life next to the concentration camp.
