6 editions published between 1955 and 2017 in German and Undetermined and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Resnais' Dokumentarfilm ist eines der wichtigsten filmischen Werke über die deutschen Konzentrationslager. Mit größter stilistischer Zurückhaltung (und einer äußerst sensiblen deutschen Fassung durch Paul Celan) wird eine Darstellung des Grauens erarbeitet, in der die zeitgenössische Wirklichkeit von Auschwitz/Birkenau mit den Dokumenten der Alliierten (Wochenschau-Bilder) konterkariert wird. Ein Film aus der Erinnerung des Nichtschilderbaren heraus: Er antizipiert die Unmöglichkeit, den Holocaust zu dramatisieren und desavouiert alle wohlfeilen Versuche, die Geschichte dieser Monstrosität "zu erzählen." []
