“Is there something to learn from the Shoah?” As a son of an authoritarian Holocaust survivor and as an individual who chose to emigrate to Germany, I search after the cognitive presence of the Holocaust and its possible influence on us. The interview segments are a textual frame for the images, which develop a certain autonomy. The subjective character of the film derives from the strong bond between us and our story; needless to mention that we are traumatized. This theme, personal and emotional as it is, holds a substantial political significance, and it takes a clearer place as the film progresses, and the scenery changes from Germany and Poland, towards my hometown Haifa, where Jews and Arabs live side by side.
