This 2007 Austrian documentary focuses on eight Vienna-born Holocaust survivors who came to New York by way of the “Kindertransporte”. For many of these women, Vienna is still their emotional dwelling place, a city that holds both fond memories but also haunting images of the violent separation from their loved ones seventy years ago.
This screening is followed by a talk with the film’s producer Nina Kusturica and some of its protagonists.
This screening is part of the Austrian Cultural Forum’s series of events within the framework of Carnegie Hall’s Vienna: City of Dreams (carnegiehall.org/vienna) festival.
