Farewell Herr Schwarz / Schnee Von Gestern

What really happened in 1945? Filmmaker Reuveny discovers how a decision made almost 70 years ago can influence the life of three generations, and how, after decades apart, two families can become one again. Much to the concern of her family, she is determined to uncover the truth about her grandmother’s brother, long believed lost in the war. A documentary that has the texture of a feature film.

    “Another upcoming film that relates to the third generation’s perspective is Farewell Herr Schwarz (by Yael Reuveny) which just premiered at the Haifa International Film Festival where the grandchild, like many grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, is living in Germany and seeking out the family of a long lost great uncle who was presumed dead. ”
