free. Go home” Most Holocaust films end with these words, the very
words that survivors heard at liberation. After Auschwitz begins with
these words, inviting audiences to experience what happened next. For
survivors, liberation from the camps was the beginning of a life long
struggle. They wanted to go home, but there was no home left in Europe.
They came to America and wanted to tell people about their pasts but
were silenced for over three decades. “You’re in America now, put it
behind you”. After Auschwitz is a “Post-Holocaust” documentary that
captures what it means to survive and try to live a normal life after
unspeakable tragedy. Six extraordinary women who all survived Auschwitz
take us on a journey that American audiences have never seen before.

parents Alex (Claire Danes) and Greg (Jim Parsons) are lucky to have a
kid like Jake. Their four-year-old is bright, precocious, creative—and
just happens to prefer Disney princesses to toy cars and skirts to
jeans. Jake’s “gender expansive” behavior—as local preschool director
Judy (Octavia Spencer) dubs it—is no big deal to Alex and Greg. Or so
it seems, until the process of navigating New York City’s
hyper-competitive private school system opens up a parental quagmire:
could Jake’s gender nonconformity be just the thing that gives their
child an edge in the admissions game? How young is too young to put a
label on a child’s identity? Is this just a phase, or is Jake truly
transgender? Split in their opinions on how to handle the situation,
Alex and Greg find themselves navigating an emotional and ethical
minefield with one patch of common ground between them: their fierce
desire to do what’s right for Jake.
