Veteran Israeli filmmaker David Fisher decides to go on a “vacation” with his three siblings – to the Nazi camps in Austria where their late father somehow managed to survive as a teen.  The documentary intersperses their trip with readings from the father’s secret Holocaust diary.  The Fisher siblings gain an intimate understanding of each other and their father, crying and sometimes laughing through this intense, harrowing, psychic voyage.  2012 Ophir (Israeli Oscar) nominee.
