Catherine Hanf Noren is the photographer and narrator of the original book on which this film is based. Noren came from a middle-class German-Jewish family, and she has created here a photographic essay that describes the members of her family before and during the Holocaust. Born in Germany in 1938, she and her parents escaped when she was only a few months old. Other members of her family remained in Germany; 26 were sent to concentration camps, where 19 of them died. Her only knowledge of these relatives comes from old family photographs.
