KHRCA Film Screening: The Pawnbroker.

Wednesday, November 9th, 2016 at 12:10pm.

In the years after World War II, Sol Nazerman, a Jewish survivor of Auschwitz, lives his days in New York City as an emotionless pawnbroker. Having lost his family and faith, as well as any belief in the goodness of man, Sol lives a primarily solitary life, plagued by flashbacks to his wartime memories. Turning away anyone who attempts to reach out to him, including a kindly social worker and one of his own employees, Sol struggles to find any meaning in his, or anyone else's, existence.

Released in 1965, 116 minutes.
