The Exit of the Trains

Poster for The Exit of the Trains A documentary essay composed entirely of archive photographs and documents of the first big massacre of Jews in Romania: in the city of Iași, on June 29, 1941, more than 10.000 were killed—first by bullets, then by asphyxiation in freight trains. In the first part of the film, photographs of the people who were eventually killed by the Romanian army and by civilians are accompanied by voices who recite the documents related to their fate in the massacre. The second part is a montage of the remaining photographs of the actual massacre (taken mostly by the German soldiers who were in town).
