Since both of my parents lived through the Nazi period in Hungary and three of my grandparents, along with uncles, aunts and cousins, were murdered in Auschwitz, the Holocaust/Shoah was something I had been aware of and struggled to comprehend from a very young age.
My parents and our surviving relatives and friends in Montreal formed a close-knit community and spoke openly about their experiences whenever they got together on weekends and holidays. There was no way I could escape wondering about the Holocaust. Why? Who? How?
My search and struggles continue to this day. So I set out to make a documentary film to discover how these legacies impact us, even across generations.
