MONUMENT

USA/Hungary, 75 min., 2023

 

Filmmaker Michael Turner (The Way We Talk) documents his first visit to a Holocaust memorial created by his grandmother Lici, a Hungarian Jew whose parents and sister were killed in Auschwitz. The resulting personal documentary is a powerful and poetic story of two relatives meeting through time and space to carry their family memory forward.

“A wondrous experience…

The power of memory, the power of place, and the

bonds that unite families shine throughout the film.”

 

– Judy Margles, Executive Director,

Oregon Jewish Museum and Center For Holocaust Education

 

“An important close-up of the Holocaust's impact

on one family's unfolding story.”

 

– Rose Wong, Willamette Week
