After 1945 over 2.400 photographs saved in the former concentration camp, Auschwitz-Oswiecim, became collection of the museum located there after the war ended. The research of the material has shown, that the people photographed are from Polish city Bedzin resided in the past mostly by Jews, localised in a distance about 40km, from where over 27.000 Hebrew citizens has been terminated in the death camp.
The four people presented in the film belong to the small group of survivors. Their memories go back to the time 60 years ago, when the photos were taken. Living in Israel they go through an inner retrospective journey, full of emotions, caused by the pictures from the past.


"You can not regonise the burden they carry within. They seem to be normal old people who look back on a more or less happy life. Only that they do not consider it normal that they are still alive."
- Eva-Maria Schirge, Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger

"This film by Andrzej Klamt and Marek Pelc, managed, what Spielberg and Co. strived in vain - to provide an idea of what and how Holocaust survivors remember."
- J. Jacoby, Allgemeine Jüdische Wochenzeitung
