CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
7 - 9 SEPTEMBER
An RTÉ Radio interview marking Holocaust Memorial Day in January 2012 is the catalyst for a remarkable journey. Holocaust survivor Tomi discovers one of his former jailers - Hilde Lisiewicz is alive and living in Hamburg. Lisiewicz is a convicted War Criminal. She claims she is “a victim of victor's justice”. Tomi embarks on a quest to investigate the SS woman's claims of innocence. Unexpectedly Tomi's odyssey ends where his story began, back in his native Merasice, meeting the ghosts from the past and embracing a German woman directly related to the man who played a central role in the liquidation of Tomi's family.
