violence
A soldier is heard being ordered to drown a man, and the cries and sounds of what people being struck or shot are audible in the background of scenes. People briefly talk about a woman with bruised arms who they think is being beaten by her husband.
threat and horror
An alarmed father rushes his children away from a river and has them scrubbed down when he fears it may have become contaminated. A woman threatens her servant, saying she could have her ashes scattered over fields. A young woman hides from soldiers while secretly delivering food to workers.
language
There is mild bad language ('bloody') along with milder terms such as 'God' and 'hell'.
sex
It is implied that a man has extramarital sex with a woman who visits his office. It is later implied that he is washing his penis after the encounter.
discrimination
There are verbal references to the incarceration and extermination of Jewish people, who are discussed in a derogatory manner. A German woman uses the term 'Jewess'.
injury detail
There is brief sight of blood being cleaned from a shoe and a man discovers what appears to be a human bone in a river.
theme
There are references to the Holocaust throughout. People discuss the installation and efficiencies of incineration machines at Auschwitz, without directly stating their purpose; German women talk about acquiring the clothing of camp victims and their children are seen playing with gold teeth. Screams, cries of distress and sounds of violence are heard coming from the concentration camp in the background of scenes focusing on the family and friends of the camp commandant going about their everyday lives. Smoke is seen billowing from the camp's chimneys. There are also occasionally more specific verbal references to the hundreds of thousands of people being deported to camps, as well as images of the displays at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum.
alcohol and smoking
Adults are seen smoking and drinking.
