The Return from the Other Planet at Filmfest München

The Return from the Other Planet (dir: Assaf Lapid, producer: Naomi Levari) screened at the 2023 Filmfest München. The Return from the Other Planet tells the story of Yechiel De-Nur after his liberation from Auschwitz. Yechiel starts writing books under the pseudonym Ka-Tzetnik (“the man from the camps”). His books sell millions of copies and are translated into 32 languages. It is not until the trial of Adolf Eichmann in 1961, where he gives testimony as a witness, that his identity becomes known, because there as in his books, he describes Auschwitz as “the other planet”.
