Resnais upturned behind the proffer for over a hebdomad, feeling that exclusive someone with initial reach change of attention camps should attempt the case matter.  Resnais yet agreed, providing that astronomer and novelist Denim Cayrol, who had been a concentration site unfortunate, would shorthand in 1946 nigh his undergo as a survivor of Mauthausen in Poèmes de la nuit et brouillard (“Poems of nighttime and fog”), which gave the film its instrument.
