"Chronicles the development of Edward Lewis Wallant's novel The Pawnbroker (1962) into a successful but controversial American movie. Rod Steiger starred as Sol Nazerman in the film that defied the motion picture industry's aversion to movies about Jews, Holocaust atrocities, and on-screen nudity. A collaborative effort of directors, producers, actors, writers, and philanthropists, The Pawnbroker set the standard for future American television series and movies contributing to the Holocaust memory."

"The strongest fictional film about survivors of the Holocaust is The Pawnbroker (1965), directed by Sidney Lumet. The film, which was the first by Lumet with a Jewish focus, deals with a man in profound distress, Sol Nazerman, once a professor of philosophy in Leipzig, Germany, and now an Auschwitz survivor whose wife and children have died in the camps. Enveloped in suffering and anguish, Nazerman, who has become an East Harlem pawnbroker, tries to wall it in by turning himself into a man of stone. The film uses jagged editing to give a greater force to Nazerman's memories of the concentration camp, which are triggered by different events. The film's final scenes follow the failed robbery of the shop planned by Nazerman's manic assistant, Jesus, who is killed in an attempt to save Nazerman from being shot. Nazerman's cathartic, silent scream over Jesus body is the ultimate breaking of the frozen ice within. The film explicitly elaborates on Nazerman's Jewish identity only once, but it makes no attempt to turn him into a universal victim whose Jewishness is incidental." [Art Index]
