Warsaw: PWZG, [1948?]. Oblong sheet folded to create  panels measuring 8 x 5 3/4 inches (200 x 145 mm) when folded. Program for Ostatni etap (The Last Stage), a film directed by Auschwitz survivor Wanda Jakubowska (1907-1998). This pioneering work was the first to portray the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camp. Part of the movie was filmed at Auschwitz, and Jakubowska employed Auschwitz survivors to work on the film. The program features black-and-white stills from the film, a list of cast members, and an essay in Polish. This was undoubtedly Jakubowska's most acclaimed film. She was an ardent communist and made some largely forgettable agitprop pieces after The Last Stage. SCARCE. #102115. Item #2115
CONDITION: Several nicks and tears, vertical fold throughout, some soiling and toning to the pages, which appear to be cheap newsprint. About Very Good.
