This is a mesmerizing documentary about Ingelore Herz Honigstein, born and raised in Germany, who narrates her inspiring story about living as an outcast in Nazi Germany not only as a Jew, but also as a deaf woman. The film is made by Ingelore’s son, whose potent use of editing, archival footage and dramatic recreations help convey the horror and bewilderment of any child living during such terrifying times. With extreme clarity and attention to detail, Ingelore does not back off from recalling everything that she experienced while living through the rise of Nazism and then making a new life for herself in America. A loving portrait of an indefatigable individual.
