One day, Dory Sontheimer, a Barcelona native with German roots, discovers the terrifying past of her Jewish family, buried in the attic of her room. She finds a detailed account of the suffering her parents went through to escape the Nazi regime, all hidden away for decades in seven boxes.
'I love the Mediterranean land, and, in spite of the history, I also love the country that repudiated my family' (Dory Sontheimer)
The documentary and the book on which it is based will serve to pay homage and give voice to people who, like the Sontheimer family, were persecuted, despised, insulted, and humiliated during the terrifying Nazi dictatorship. Furthermore, these testimonies will help the descendants of families like theirs, feel proud of their roots and origins.
