Synopsis

Winner of the JEWISH QUARTERLY WINGATE PRIZE 2014

Sent as a child first to the ghetto of Theresienstadt then on to Auschwitz, survivor Otto Dov Kulka spent a lifetime studying the Holocaust. In these illustrated deeply personal reflections he brings to shocking and moving life moments and fragments of memory he cannot forget.

'Fewer still will know that for a decade I made tape-recordings which allowed me to describe the images that well up in my memory and explore the remembrance of what in my private mythology is called 'The Metropolis of Death', or in deceptive simplicity: 'Childhood Landscapes of Auschwitz'.'
