About the event

In honour of Fred Zinnemann’s birth month and as part of The Wiener Library’s Fate Unknown exhibition series, we are pleased to host a free screening of Zinnemann’s The Search (1948). The screening will be accompanied by a talk from renowned expert on Zinnemann’s work, Professor J. E. Smyth (University of Warwick).

Starring Ivan Jandl, Montgomery Clift, Aline MacMahon, and Jarmila Novotna, The Search tells the story of a young Auschwitz survivor and his mother who search for each other across postwar Europe. Zinnemann was one of the first filmmakers allowed inside postwar Germany, and he spent months interviewing child Holocaust survivors, many of whom appear in the film.
