Six Million and One (Israel, 2011, 93 min.) - A documentary film by David Fisher
***A discussion with the filmmaker will follow the screening***
Filmmaker David Fisher discovers his father's memoir, a key to understanding the hopes and demons that plagued Joseph Fisher while he was in a concentration camp during the Holocaust. Joseph was a Hungarian Jew interned in Gusen and Gunskirchen, Austria, who later moved to Israel. His memoir was discovered only after his death. Fisher and his siblings retrace the footsteps of their late father, undertaking a remarkable journey to Austria …The siblings joke, kibitz and quarrel, and remind us that history and memory require active discussion among the later generations.
