Top of page

I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors is director Ann Marie Fleming’s animated adaptation of Bernice Eisenstein’s acclaimed illustrated memoir. Using the healing power of humour, the film probes the taboos around a very particular second-hand trauma, leading us to a more universal understanding of human experience. It explores identity and loss through the audacious proposition that the Holocaust is addictive and defining.

This DVD also contains interviews with director Ann Marie Fleming and author Bernice Eisenstein.
