Some of the world’s last remaining Holocaust survivors with roots all over Europe meet every week at Café Zelig in Munich, Germany. They get together to laugh and celebrate holidays, to argue and discuss various topics, but they also hold moments of silence and mourning. Some of them, and some of their children, undertake a journey into their past, back to their old home country in Poland. And they talk about the difficulties they had, and still have, finding their way back to a normal life in Germany.
Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with director Tanja Cummings, editor Angelika Levi, film subjects Benjamin Rosendahl & Ron Eiger, and moderator Dr. Helen Chaset. To view the conversation please click here.
