“It was really easy for me to imagine what it would be like for a young woman who wants to be an artist, who is watching her mother cavort with the world’s most famous artists, often talk all day about their art and then ignore her own creative production. So in that way, I identified very much with what that emotional neglect would feel like.” –Courtney Maum

As a member of a generation filmmaker Sara Greenberg terms “the last living link to the survivors,” she feels strongly about her responsibility to relate her grandparents’ Holocaust experiences to the world and to future generations.
