Jakubowska’s penultimate film also contrasts the present with the memory of the war. Anna, the protagonist, is a concentration camp survivor and a respected pediatrician. Her former fiancée Piotr—their planned marriage was prevented by the war and Anna eventually married someone else, believing Piotr had died—is now a scientist living in the US and is on a visit to Poland. With him, Anna visits the places she can’t forget: Auschwitz, Sachsenhausen, Ravensbrück. Anna’s convictions and values have been strongly shaped by her experiences in the war and are totally different to those of her daughter Natalia, who is a materialist happy to accept Piotr’s invitation to the US.
