$39.95
Mordechai Vilozny never told his children about his experiences during the Holocaust. His silence resulted in the alienation of his first born, Shmuel. He now returns to Poland after fifty years, accompanied by his two children. Through the pilgrimage, both Mordechai and Shmuel are finally liberated; the father, from the trauma of the Holocaust, the son from the shadows of his fatherís unknown pain. For the first time in many years, they are able to hug, to kiss, to laugh and to cry together. This film documents the journey as they visit the sites of Mordechaiís childhood as well as Auschwitz. Interspersed are stand-up comedy routines by Shmuel- a comic by profession- in which he is brutally frank about the emotional turmoil of a second generation Holocaust survivor.
