Using the healing power of humor, the film probes the taboos around a very particular second-hand trauma.


 


I Was a Child of Holocaust Survivors is an animated adaptation of Bernice EISENSTEIN’s critically acclaimed illustrated memoir. By using EISENSTEIN’s illustrations and voice the film makes the memoir written from a first-person point of view come to life. This is an extraordinary film, which deals with a second-hand trauma of a child, who is aware of the fact that her parents are holocaust survivors and yet cannot empathize with their painful experience. This film is unlike other in that it uses a parody of a B-horror film and shows the power of honesty with humor. (CHO Hye-young)
