Abstract

Daleká cesta (Distant Journey, Czechoslovakia, 1949) is one of the most important and explicit early feature films about the Holocaust. The authors draw upon different versions of the script, censorship records, newspaper clippings in five languages, and other archival records to follow the film’s genesis, authorship, production history, distribution, and reception, both in Czechoslovakia and abroad. The story both reflects and elucidates the shifting political landscape in liberated, and then Communist, Czechoslovakia.
