Abstract

After Eichman's 1961 trial, emerged both the public figure of the Holocaust survivor and witness, and the idea of the Holocaust's uniqueness among genocides. Yet other possibilities existed, in particular because, as Rouch and Morin's film shows, as well as other testimony from the period, the preoccupation with France's then on-going war in Algeria, reminded many of the people in France who ended up in anti-colonisation movements of the Nazis and of the camps.
