In Steve McQueen’s own words, his cinematic take on the Holocaust holds “the weight of what happened”.Taking as its starting point Bianca Stigter’s Atlas of an Occupied City, Amsterdam 1940-1945, it visits 130 (edited down from 2,000)locations in present-day Amsterdam that the Jewish community inhabited before and during the Nazi occupation of the city. As Melanie Hyams’ voice over quietly and matter-of-factly narrates what took place a teach site, we confront all sorts of dissonance between the traumatic past and a mundane present, threaded through with new preoccupations and causes. Out of a simple but rigorous process comes something moving,nuanced and monumental in sheer detail.
