For the first time on screen, second-generation children of Holocaust Survivors open up about their abused childhood suffering. Only now, decades later, they dare confront the memory of both physical and mental abuse. Their Holocaust survivor parents had inadvertently turned from abused Nazi victims, into the abusers of their own children. The film will shed light on the emotional and psychological consequences on the second generation, as they now dread passing on the pain, abuse and horror to the next generation.
