Item #: XB9152

A powerful documentary about identity, resilience, and the plight of displaced persons. Born inside the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in 1945, separated as babies, brothers Izak and Shep were never told of each other's existence. Nearly 70 years later, Izak's discovery of family records lead to an emotional reunion with Shep and their elderly mother Aida, who hid more from them than just each other. 95 min, 1 DVD. In Hebrew and English with English subtitles.
