Shisha million ve'ehad = Six million and one / yes.docu ; ZDF/Arte [and others] ; Fisher Features presents ; a film by David Fisher ; script, director & producer, David Fisher

Publication | Library Call Number: DVD-1336

"Joseph Fisher's memoir was discovered only after his death. His children refused to confront it, except for David, the filmmaker, for whom it became a compass for a long journey. When he found it unbearable to be alone in the wake of his father's survival story and his struggle not to lose his sanity, David persuaded his siblings to join him in the hope that this would also contribute to releasing tensions and making them as close as they used to be. They, for their part, couldn't understand why anyone should want to dig into the past instead of enjoying life in the present. In the dark depths of the B8 Bergkristall tunnels, part of the Austrian KZ Gusen II concentration camp, where their father had slaved during the Holocaust, illuminated only by flashlights, the Fishers seek meaning in their personal and family histories. As their deepest pains are exposed, they find themselves crying and laughing, in bitter-sweet scenes that give this personal film a rare sense of intimacy."--Wikipedia.
