    Abstract

    The Slovak film, The Shop on Main Street (Obchod na korze), was the first Central European production to win an Oscar and also the first film about the Holocaust to win an Oscar. While fascism was anathema to the communists who ruled Czechoslovakia at the time the film was made, the road to depicting the Holocaust film under their rule was over a decade long, and the ancestry of The Shop on Main Street in domestic filmmaking was limited.
