One daughter in tribute to her mother, who against her will became a hero during the Holocaust.
Zuzi Braun and her sister Agi were happy, secure teenagers with a very strong connection, in Slovakia on the 1930’s when their world turned upside down. Zuzi’s daughter celebrates her mother’s courage and perseverance as they travel together and retrace the harrowing journey that Zuzi took in order to save her crippled sister and herself. A beautiful and moving tribute.

This is a family story of wonderful memories, a tale of tremendous bravery, a story told by a woman looking back on her life. Surrounded by her family, Zuzi relates the details of her story in a matter-of-fact way which I found strangely compelling. She explains that she tells the story with objective distance, "in the third person", as if it were the story of someone else. This is her coping mechanism.
