No Concentration Camp Shoot for Nicole Kidman Starrer The Reader

Curators at Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Germany have turned down the filmmakers' request to shoot scenes for the movie at the site.

The initial refusal previously experienced by "Valkyrie" makers in filming at Berlin's Bendlerblock now is also happening to Nicole Kidman-starred "The Reader." Variety reports that the project has been denied permission to take scenes at historical Sachsenhausen concentration camp, which is located north of Berlin, Germany.

Spokesman for the curators at the site, Horst Seferens, said the filmmakers had asked for an approval to use the location for a key scene in the movie, but the request was ultimately turned down. The man further explained that only documentary filmmakers are allowed to shoot the place, which is now used to commemorate millions of Jews in the Holocaust.

"Former concentration camp sites are cemeteries - it's just not appropriate to use them as film sets," the man stated.

The Stephen Daldry-directed, based on Bernhard Schlink's international best-selling novel, is set in contemporary Germany and follows a man as he recounts the story of his erotic awakening in a covert love affair with an older woman in the wake of WWII. Filming begins this week with Ralph Fiennes as the leading actor and Anthony Minghella plus Sydney Pollack producing.
