The rela­tion­ship between the near-cente­narian Enny and her daughter Tascha is still domi­nated by the death of Enny’s first two daugh­ters in Auschwitz. In a subtle portrait of his New York-based family, film­maker Marco Niemeijer grad­u­ally unfolds the harrowing, suffo­cating effects of a war trauma across the gener­a­tions. Even after Enny’s demise, the past keeps dictating Tascha’s life. As a viewer, mean­while, it is not easy to take a posi­tion seeing the impo­tence of mother and daughter. After all, how should one relate to a victim who victimises others?
