The Holocaust would seem to be an absolutely off-limits topic for comedy — but is it? History shows that the victims of the Nazi concentration camps themselves used humor as a means of survival and resistance — but where do we draw the line? In this intimate cinema verité portrait of Auschwitz, survivor Renee Firestone offers fresh insights into the Holocaust in a way we haven’t seen before alongside interviews of influential comedians and thinkers.
