Marcus Schwarz has spent a lifetime concealing his Jewish heritage. After surviving the horrors of Auschwitz, he has painstakingly created a new identity for himself in Germany. But as his twilight years draw near, Marcus decides he wants to be buried in a Jewish cemetery. There’s only one small problem: the rabbis don’t believe he’s Jewish. Forced to return to his childhood Hungarian village to prove his true identity, Marcus enlists a troubled young Turkish woman to drive him on what turns out to be a life-changing trip for both. Salafati’s funny, poignant story of friendship and healing explores the cost of forgetting the past, and the power in remembering it. In English, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, and Yiddish with English subtitles. (German, Hungarian, Hebrew, English, Yiddish with English Subtitles)
