Das Weiterleben der Ruth Klüger

It is one thing to survive the Holocaust, but quite another to deal with the lasting impact of this experience. This filmic portrait of Ruth Klüger, an American literary scholar from Vienna, deals with these issues by revisiting four significant places in her life: Vienna, California, Göttingen and Israel. Ruth Klüger also shares her thoughts on very personal topics: her childhood in anti-Jewish Vienna, her life in the States, her motherhood of two American sons and the culture of commemoration.
