Two survivors of the Holocaust reminisce
3 December 1999 | by GMeleJrSee all my reviews

This poignant, award winning German film, documents the lives of HERR (Mr.) ZWILLING and FRAU (Mrs.) ZUCKERMANN, the only two living survivors of the Holocaust in today's Chernowitz, a medium size city now in the Ukraine. The city which was Austrian, then Romanian, before being annexed to the Ukraine after World War II, flourished as a center of Jewish culture (its population was formerly 40% Jewish), for centuries. Today's Jewish life in Chernowitz is chronicled by the two characters. One of the most interesting aspects is that the German language is what bonds Herr Zwilling and Frau Zuckermann.
