Last Journey Into Silence

Directed by: Shosh Shlam
52 Minutes, 2001

Filmed at the Shaar Menashe Hospital in Israel, this heartbreaking film examines the plight of elderly Holocaust survivors whose war-time experiences have left them unable to find inner peace. Abandoned by their families, Iosefina, Hana and Fira – the three patients featured – have spent the last few decades in this hospital, and the film combines an account of their daily routines and lives with the painful journey faced by their respective daughters as they visit their mothers and try to bring them back to family life.
