Through the experiences of her grandmother, Meirav Kampeas-Riess transports us to mid-20thcentury Europe to question our values and show us the importance of memory, history and education.
The story begins in 1938 in the bosom of a Jewish family living in Selish, a city of the former Austro-Hungarian empire. Through the eyes of Edith Roth, then a sixteen-year-old girl full of illusions and love, we see how her family lived and how life radically changed when the Nazis invaded her city. Living through a ghetto and the Auschwitz concentration camp transforms young Edith into a strong woman who manages to survive the horror and, after numerous vicissitudes, begins a new life in Israel.
