Storyline

In 2010 I visited Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps for the first time and filmed the visit. I knew many of my relatives had been killed there. Incredibly, that year I also found over 250 documents from Poland and Leipzig, documenting the fate of seven Morawski family members. In 2012, I revisited the camps again with my friend Harald Grosskopf, with whom I had made the documentary German Sons. The two visits triggered an ongoing personal investigation into the matrix of Holocaust Restitution, with the Morawskis, my murdered family, as a portal into the shocking world of Nazi barbarism and looting. With billions of dollars unaccounted for, for millions of victims and heirs, the issue remains an open wound, the legacy of unprecedented crimes against humanity. This film documents this odyssey into the heart of evil, past and present. Written by Philippe Mora

Masterful and original approach by Mora and Clapton
27 March 2016 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED DIRECTOR PHILIPPE MORA AND MUSIC LEGEND ERIC CLAPTON CREATE A MASTERPIECE TOGETHER.

This is a Masterful and Original approach to a sensitive subject. Mora is a creative film genius. "THREE DAYS IN AUSCHWITZ' takes a personal approach to the topic of the Holocaust. It is a heartfelt film that will touch your emotions. The collaboration of friends Director Mora and Music Legend Clapton, is a great opus that will find a permanent place of honor in film history.

Visiting Auschwitz in three days, Director Mora weaves decades of world and personal history together. The viewer is gently swept along on his poignant odyssey.
