Ruth Klüger grew up in fascist Vienna, survived three years in Nazi concentration camps, and went on to become a college professor and a recognized authority on German literature. She also wrote Landscapes of Memory: A Holocaust Girlhood Remembered, an award-winning best seller said to be “as important as The Diary of Anne Frank—and equally unforgettable” by The Independent (London). In this documentary, Klüger doesn’t mince words as she shares her thoughts on her childhood in anti-Jewish Vienna, her post–World War II life in America, her experiences as a mother of two American sons, and the culture of commemoration that has grown up around the Holocaust. Filmed in Vienna, California, Göttingen, and Israel. (Portions in German with English subtitles, 83 minutes).
