Storyline

Imre and Max Rochlitz, two brothers who fled Nazi Vienna in 1938 when they were in their early teens, return to the sites of their childhood: their High School, their apartment, the tuberculosis sanatorium where their father died in 1927 and the neglected Jewish cemetery on the outskirts of Vienna where he was buried. A highlight of their visit is the encounter with Max's good friend Alexander Schwarz, who also fled Vienna after the Anschluss, lived in the US for 60 years and returned to Vienna at the age of 90 to live out his days in a Jewish retirement home. During their week-long stay, the brothers encounter various aspects of the Haider phenomenon and also pay a visit to the Austrian War Archives. A brief voyage of reflection on past and present.
