Overview

Filmmakers Danny and Jack Fisher created this straightforward documentary on their parents' experience of the Holocaust (they miraculously survived), and how that experience -- as well as the holocaust itself -- may have created a barrier in communication with the next generation. On the surface, the Fishers seem distanced from their offspring, a trait found among holocaust survivors in other countries as well -- and conversations among the family members are not free of acrimony, or of guilt. The film suggests that the wounds from the holocaust go deeper, last longer, and affect several generations. Although interesting, this documentary is too talkative for some critics, who would prefer more photographic evidence and historical footage from the past and shorter discussion time.
