This Emmy-winning film tells the story of three people who were imprisoned as children in Terezin, the small Czech town that the Nazis converted into a concentration camp. It was the notorious “showplace” camp used for propaganda purposes by the Nazis. Making excellent use of the survivors’ diaries and drawings hidden during the war, along with archival footage and photos, the film follows their stories through the difficult postwar years into the present with their adult children. The film integrates the survivors’ remembrances with an examination of how the past influenced their lives and the lives of their children. While one son admits he could not bring himself to read his mother’s diary, another daughter confronts her father for the first time saying, “You cannot pretend it did not affect us.” Home video sales only!
