When the story of the unspeakable has been told a thousand times, when the images of the unimaginable have been shown a thousand times, when the mind is numb - where do you go from there? You have to start anew... That is where KZ begins. On the banks of the river Danube, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of Upper Austria, lies the picturesque town of Mauthausen. Close to its town centre is a place that attracts people from all over the world. Tour guides come to work here every day, while nearby locals go about their daily lives. This is a place where thousands upon thousands of people from over 30 nations were tortured and murdered. This site is the former KZ, German short for concentration camp. Chattering school-groups are silenced when they hear unimaginable stories of the atrocities committed there. Young tour-guides describe daily the torture and suffering inflicted upon those brought to the camp. Through its unflinching depiction of daily modern life in this small Austrian town, KZ reveals the lasting legacy and impact of the Holocaust on individuals of all generations, nationalities and religions. Stark, radically different yet startlingly powerful, KZ is at once a timeless and contemporary film.
