Anja Salomonowitz portrays three women from her family who as children lived through WWII but remember that time very differently. They were on different sides, present history differently today, and belong to different memory collectives: Hanka Jassy, her great-aunt, survived Auschwitz. Gertrude Rogenhofer, her nanny, was a socialist and supported her uncle in the resistance. Margit Kohlhauser, her grandmother, lived in Graz during the war. She did there what most did: Nothing. "The film succeeds in providing undisguised and intimate insights into the lives and survival strategies of these three so different grandmothers of the author." (presseportal.de)
