They both survived, and after the death of her twin sister, due to the subsequent consequences of the concentration camp in 1993, Eva Mozes Kor visited Germany. The experience of this journey led her to forgive her tormentors. “I was no longer a victim of Auschwitz. I was no longer a prisoner of my tragic past. At last I was free”.

The End of the Neubacher Project

AUS/NL 2006 / Producer: Marcus J. Carney / 74 min.

“At the beginning I wanted to make a film about the dead Nazis of my family. The reason was simple and unbearable: a far too secret state of depression”. “It is all about nothing less than fascism and its continuous deadly consequences.” “Every person has parents and every person has a family history. Nearly every family is sooner or later shocked by historical facts, dead ancestors and past lives.”

In the Face of Darkness. A Spiritual Meeting with Auschwitz

D/USA 2009 / Regie: Christof Wolf / OmU / 74 min.

Auschwitz – a unique symbol of methodical perfect horror and yet destination of daily hordes of tourists. How can a meeting with this place avoid the banality of a mere viewing. The New York Zen Master Roshi Bernhard Glassman asked himself this question. His answer: “The Auschwitz Retreat.” He invited people from many different backgrounds and ideologies, to totally unprotected face Auschwitz. Christians, Jews, Muslims and Buddhists met. Descendants of victims and descendants of perpetrators. The film portrays 5 participants and follows closely their inner development. They change, convictions start to wobble, old scars burst open, reconciliation begins to take place. Not any longer do they go to Auschwitz, Auschwitz comes to them – testimony of that which once happened here.
