Shot in black and white and using a freeze frame device, this film poses the question of appropriate commemoration. People are shown crowding through memorials like Sachsenhausen or Dachau, but also individuals who grasp something essential about the Holocaust during their visit. »The film asks us how we formulate universally agreed ideas about sacrilege in places where religion does not officially apply« [The Guardian].

Length: 94 minutes
Language: Original version with english subtitles
