Storyline

My siblings refused to open dad's memoir after his death; it contained secrets so long locked away. I did: forced-labor camps, beatings, hunger, cannibalism, homosexuality... it uncovered his demons. Some things were familiar - others seemed weird, hallucinatory, nightmarish. I tried deciphering them, following the memoir's path. I made half the journey alone. I forced the second half on my siblings, who didn't want to participate, even while crawling around tunnels and enchanted forests. This isn't a film about the holocaust, because we spent most of our time laughing... it's about a rare intimacy and bond that replaced pain with bitter-sweet humor. Written by Anonymous

Great documentary, something special
18 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being interested in WW2, making a study of it, I found this movie to be both entertaining and very informational.

It's not your typical documentary about the WW2 Holocaust. Overall not usually an easy subject for the average viewer, often told somewhat dry and stoic; usually horrid visuals of death and mass-murder. Stunned, pushing distance, you know what you see is probably real but can be so so ghastly that it's almost surreal.

Here it's seen through the eyes of the eldest son, and his siblings as they pour through their father's (a concentration camp survivor) hand written diary. Thankfully, refreshingly, and in some different point of view, there is little of the shocking death videos. You are fascinatingly stepped through the account of locations from the diary; photos of what it was then and what they are today (many locations appear almost untouched) et al.

The whole thing made the survivor's heroing story more real and human; educational.

One of the best parts of the it was when the siblings discussed in length, while visiting some of the key diary locations, what it all was meant to them; their feelings, reflections of what their father had bared to miraculously survive (when most couldn't, didn't), and how it shaped the family's lives in their own generation and beyond.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in WW2 history, and, or, would just like to see well made and entertaining documentary..
