FIRST PRIZE National Council on Family Relations Film Festival

FINALIST
American Film Festival

This PBS documentary tells a moving story of personal growth as the children of Holocaust survivors find the strength to confront their painful legacy and overcome the barriers of unasked and unanswered questions that separate them from their parents.

As the young adults connect with their parents, the second generation discovers its own voice and grapples with the question of how to bear witness to their own children. Poignant dialogues are interwoven with commentary by Robert Jay Lifton, Helen Epstein, and Moshe Waldoks documenting this encounter between the two generations.
