Teofila Silberring: So that memory doesn‘t die

This unique story is told to us by a woman who never left her beloved Krakow—except for the six years she lived in Nazi hell. Mrs Silberring remembers her neighborhood by door numbers – her school at this address, her synagogue over there – even the church she used to go to on Sunday’s with her governess. In 1939, a life of wealth and privilege turned into a life of hell and torment. This is her story.

This film was made possible thanks to grants from the German Federal Agency for Civic Education (BpB) and the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference). Special thanks to Magdelana Bizon, who interviewed Mrs. Silberring.
