The Exit of the Trains, an essay film directed by Radu Jude and Adrian Cioflâncă, uses archival materials to reflect on the massacre of Jewish people in Iași, Romania, on 29 June 1941. The film consists of two parts, the first of which is composed of photographs of some of the 10,000 people who were murdered, accompanied by testimonies and excerpts from interviews and diaries. The second part of the film, which is shorter than the first, is a montage of photographs taken by German soldiers of the massacre itself.
