In this haunting short fiction film, a group of Jewish children and their teacher are herded into an ambulance by Nazis; the vehicle, ordinarily representing comfort and safety, becomes the group's death chamber.

The figure of the children's teacher specifically parallels Janusz Korčak (1879-1942), a famous Jewish educator who ran an orphanage in the Warsaw Ghetto and died with his young charges at Treblinka

Bariera = La barrière by Jerzy Skolimowski( Visual )

4 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in Polish and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central character is a young medical student who decides to give up his studies in a search for more immediate material success. The title refers to the barrier between the generations, the generation which celebrates Polish heroism in World War II and the younger generation disenchanted with the Poland of the fifties and sixties. Skolimowski's free-wheeling blend of the symbolic and the surreal transforms Warsaw into an unreal world analogous to the mental landscape of the hero. Komeda's strikingly original music underscores Skolimowski's bitter romanticism. At one point the central character wraps a photograph of Skolimowski around his face to signify that Skolimowski originally intended to play this character himself in semi-autobiographical continuity with his earlier film 'Walkover'
