FAREWELL HERR SCHWARZ (SCHNEE VON GESTERN) (Germany/Israel | 96m | 2014 | German, Hebrew & English)
This cinematic journey about buried family secrets and the legacy of the Holocaust won best documentary awards at the Haifa Int’l and DOK Leipzig film festivals. At the end of WWII, Reuveny’s grandmother Michla planned to meet her brother Feiv’ke at the Lodz train station. He never showed up. Fifty years later, Reuveny traces how three generations of her family are haunted by the meeting that never happened. Michla ended up in Israel, while Feiv’ke, believed dead, remained in Germany. The Israeli and German sides of the family lived unaware of each other until this film.
