Abschied ein Leben Lang- A Life-Long Farewell

by Kratz, Kathe; Published by Extrafilm (1999)

Three former residents of Vienna, KTA member Anne (Anny) Kelemen, Gerda Lederer and Curtis Brown (Kurt Braun), return to Vienna, the city where they were born. They are invited by the ‘Lost Neighborhood’ memorial project, part of which is the reconstruction of the fa├žade of a synagogue destroyed 60 years ago. The stories told by these three emigrants are juxtaposed with images of this project, resulting in a dramatic, humorous and moving documentary of Jewish life in 1930s Vienna.
