A Jewish-Hungarian Family Revisited

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.
