For 70 years, the site of Auschwitz, incarnation of the Holocaust, has been the scene of hijackings and clashes, looting, various attempts at instrumentalisation and storytelling … Beyond the factual narrative, the documentary brings us back to the various questions that have followed one another: What to do with the site? What is its vocation? What are the threats that weigh on this place of memory and transmission today? A tormented story, never told, whose future is written today.
