The Holocaust and My Father: Six Million and One

'My siblings refused to open my father's memoir after his death', recalls filmmaker David Fisher. 'I opened it, uncovering his demons'. Fisher's father Joseph, a Hungarian Jew, was interned in the Gusen and Gunskirchen concentration camps in Austria during the Second World War. His memoir detailed the horrendous ordeal that he survived and prompted David, dragging his reluctant siblings along with him, to retrace their father's footsteps. This resulting film is a bittersweet account of their journey into their father's past.
