Language & subtitles: German original version with English subtitles
Anja Salomonowitz portrays three women from her family who were almost girls during the Nazi era. All three played a key role in her upbringing. They stood on different sides, present the story differently today: Hanka Jassy, ​​her great-aunt, survived Auschwitz. Gertrude Rogenhofer, her nanny, was a socialist and supported her uncle in the resistance. Margit Kohlhauser, the grandmother, lived in Graz during the war. She did what most did there: nothing. The filmmaker confronts herself and her family members with the different memories. She asks questions and, when she puts her grandmother in the picture, is just as much a granddaughter as she is descendants of survivors.
