My grandparents survived the Holocaust but they never talked about it. After discovering a memoir my grandmother had written in the last years of her life, I finally learned their story, seven years after her death and ten years after his. 'Yizkor' uses my grandmother's own words, along with animation, archival material, and present-day Super 8 footage, to tell that story, one of survival and resilience in the face of crushing loss.
