The Shop on Main Street... my second Czech film, and like Closely Watched Trains, won the Oscar© for Best Foreign Film (1966).

A heartrendering tragicomedy about anti-Semitism and deportation in a small town in rural 1942 Slovakia, with Ida Kaminská as an elderly Jewess button shop owner befriended and protected by a carpenter, Josef Kroner.

Co-directed by Elmar Klos and Ján Kadár.
