At a reunion of German concentration camp survivors, interviews with children of these survivors show how painful experiences of the camps have affected their offspring in many different ways. The daughter of survivors of Dachau concentration camp travels to Israel and Germany to gain an understanding of her parents’ experience. Now in their twnties and thirties, many children of survivors "the second generation" feel deeply affected by their parents’ ordeal, just as their German contemporaries live with a burden of confusion and guilt about the crimes of their parents’ generation.
