Jonathan Glazer’s 2023 film The Zone of Interest, based on Martin Amis’ 2014 novel of the same name, garnered international attention with its unique approach to depicting the Holocaust on screen. Winner of two Academy Awards (“Best International Feature” and “Best Sound”), the film is not concerned with showing the atrocities committed in Auschwitz, instead asking the viewer to reflect on the perpetrators’ everyday lives. In the framework of the seminar “Literary Representation of the Shoah” and in cooperation with the Casablanca Nürnberg, the Chair of English Cultural and Literary Studies has organized a screening of the The Zone of Interest.
