My grandmother and the Holocaust:
A Documentary film by Sara Sommerfeld
Sara Sommerfeld is currently filming her own documentary about her grandmother and the Holocaust together with coproducer and photographer Johan Romin.
The actress Sara Sommerfeld's grandmother survived the Holocaust, after several years of hell in ghetto, slave labor camps, extermination camp Auschwitz and the so-called Death march. The film takes its starting point today, in Sara's life as an actress and first time mother, and follows her to the places that her grandmother survived during the Second World War. She also meets new-found relatives, interviews Holocaust survivors and history experts, which intertwine into a personal and emotional story about the history of the Holocaust.
The goal of the film is that through this personal story, spread knowledge and awareness about Nazi evil, and thus contribute to combating anti-Semitism.
My grandmother and the Holocaust is being made thanks to The Bindefeld Foundation. It will be broadcasted on Swedish TV4 in Maj 2015.

to the full: Both Wilson ('Evil') and Sommerfeld ('Wings of Glass')
are better known outside Sweden for their dramatic perfs, but here
show they're more than capable of holding their own in lighter fare."
