After Auschwitz Documentary!

If you haven’t watched the documentary “After Auschwitz” from 2017 yet, I highly recommend watching it asap. It looks at Six Survivors and their Lives. It is heartbreaking, eye-opening and a reminder for all of us that unfortunately, nothing has changed since World War II. Today’s refugees suffer the same way like these six ladies did back in the 40es after the end of World War II.

For survivors, liberation from the camps was the beginning of a lifelong struggle. They wanted to go home, but there was no home left in Europe. They went to America and wanted to tell people about their pasts but were silenced for over three decades. "You're in America now, put it behind you". That’s what the Americans told them. “After Auschwitz” is a "Post-Holocaust" documentary that captures what it means to survive and try to live a “normal” life after unspeakable tragedy!

Six extraordinary women who all survived Auschwitz take us on their journey. All these women moved to Los Angeles, married, raised children, and became "Americans" but they never truly found a place to call home. That’s how refugees feel today. Their unbelievable journey, sometimes celebratory, sometimes heartbreaking but always inspiring is a must-see for everyone regardless of age, life story, and opinion about refugees in general.
