ABSTRACT
The present paper focuses on two well-known representations of the Holocaust in Czech cinema, Alfred Radok's Distant Journey and Jan Nemec's Diamonds of the Night, belonging to two distinct periods and cinematic traditions: the former is an illustration of avant-garde expressionism, blending documentary footage and fictional events in a highly stylised production, while the latter is representative for the so-called New Czech Wave movement, developed in the at the beginning of the 1960s under the influence of Italian Neorealism, the French Nouvelle Vague and the surrealist tradition in cinema. The analysis of the films will deal with the representation of the Holocaust as trauma in the two productions, each of them in the context of its own age.
