This documentary video takes Director Gryn back to Berehovo, the childhood home of her father Hugo, a London rabbi. The memories are that of a Jewish community that was shipped to Birkenau concentration camp. Historical footage of Carpathian Jewish farmers and the "liberation" of Berehovo by Hungarian troops is shown.
