Austin Jewish Film Festival Summer Film Series: Labyrinthe of Peace
The Austin Jewish Film Festival will present one of the first opportunities in the U.S. to see the series Labyrinthe of Peace.
It is 1945. The war is over. Switzerland, the neutral small country at the heart of Europe, was all but spared: Klara, her fiancé Johann and his brother Egon are looking bright-eyed into the future. While Klara tries to mend the wounds of the war by caring for young, displaced Holocaust survivors, Johann, who works for her industrialist father, hopes to save and modernize his father-in-law’s well-established, yet troubled textile company. Just home from military service, Egon takes his first steps in the Attorney General’s office. His mission: to hunt down escaped Nazis. All three of them soon realize that the façade of peace is bought with the blood of the victims of war.
