Product Description

A film portraying the impact of the Holocaust on families of concentation camp survivors, A Generation Apart brings to the screen a new and dramatic dimension of Hitler's attempted destruction of the Jewish people. Now that the children of survivors have grown, it has become painfully clear that their parents' wartime horrors have formed a very real emotional cornerstone in their families' relationships. A Generation Apart captures these family relationships with incredibly candid -- and sometimes explosive -- confrontations between survivors and their children in a way that illuminates the nature of problems between parents and children in general.


A testimony to the power of love. --The Los Angeles Times

The most dramatic and moving exchanges you're likely to see on the screen. --Newsday

Remarkably Honest. --San Francisco Chronicle

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This interview is lovingly done by one of the sons of a couple who experienced the Holocaust, fell in love, and created for themselves and their family a new life. There are insights that are spoken for the first time to their children, and the sons give poigniant feedback on how it felt to be raised in a household where the parents lived in the shadow and suffering of their losses.

As a second generation Holocaust survivor and professor of Holocaust Studies, I consider this film very well done and important for my students to see.
