Das Kind

The Child

Irma and her son Andre set out on a personal journey accross Europe in search of a past and a story of which Irma is the last witness. Irma combines significant places, meetings and personal reunions to offer us a spontaneous, poetic and deeply moving account of what has been her incredible destiny. A Jew, communist and Resistance fighter, whose life spanned the dark moments of our history, she remains above all a mother who speaks to us all.
