Movie Info

Past present and future mix in this eloquent, intense and surprisingly humorous portrait of documentary filmmaker David Fisher and his siblings, as they retrace the footsteps of their late father-a Holocaust survivor who was interned in Gusen and Gunskirchen, Austria. David's journey takes him to the U.S., where he meets American WWII veterans who participated in the liberation of his father and Gunskirchen camp. This sparks a remarkable journey to Austria by the Fisher siblings. They joke, kibitz and quarrel, and remind us that history and memory require active discussion among the later generations. -- (C) Official Site

Adds to documentary canon of the Holocaust as it grapples with repercussions and impact decades later on the next generation. . .though [family] arguments are hard to follow.

Audience Reviews for Six Million and One

½

Saw this movie today, January 27th, Holocaust Remembrance Day, a very poignant, personal study of four siblings coming to grips with their father's past as a Holocaust survivor. Highly recommended as a psychological study while still recalling the reality of the Holocaust itself.
