Café Zelig
(German title: Das Zelig)

A documentary film by Tanja Cummings

SYNOPSIS:

Every week, survivors of the Shoah from different regions of Europe meet regularly in a Munich apartment - the Café Zelig. Many of them carry dramatic, traumatic stories of survival and the loss of relatives and friends. They are looked after sensitively and lovingly at Café Zelig. The film accompanies some of them back to their past, to their old homeland in Poland, from which they were uprooted. It follows them into the years of the post-war period in Germany, where they found their ways back into life. And it shows their everyday lives today. A film about coping with trauma and one of the last chances to get into conversation with Holocaust survivors and to give them the opportunity to bear witness.
