SWIMMING POOL AT THE GOLAN

a film by Esther Zimmering

SWIMMING POOL AT THE GOLAN

Germany 2018 | 90:00 min

Synopsis
Actress Esther Zimmering's directorial debut covers three generations of German-Jewish life in Germany, the GDR and Israel. Using archive footage and interviews with her family members, Zimmering uncovers the secrets and inconsistencies in her family's history. A history which saw Esther's grandmother Lizzi and her cousin, great-aunt Lore, being the only ones in the family to survive the Holocaust and then become involved in the creation of two new states – constructing Socialism in the former GDR or as part of the Kibbutz movement in Israel. Are those ideals still kept alive in their descendants today?
