Montgomery Clift stars in an Academy Award-nominated performance as an American GI who befriends a lost, young Auschwitz survivor looking for his family in The Search. Europe, 1945.

Among the millions is one starving young boy, Karel Malik (Ivan Jandl), who was separated from his mother at Auschwitz. GI Ralph Stevenson (Clift) befriends the lost and nearly hopeless boy, planning to take him back to the United States as there is very little chance that his mother survived the death camp.
