HABEHIRA VEHAGORAL is also based on trust. Tsipi Reibenbach's film shows her parents. We see the rituals of their domestic life in Tel Aviv: Reibenbach's mother plaits baked goods with care, her father chops onions precisely. At the table, he talks about the Miechow ghetto, Auschwitz and Mauthausen. About how even the dogs became thinner and thinner because the prisoners fought for their food. About the gas chambers. The mother remains silent about her experiences in the camp, looking uneasily towards the camera. When her husband goes for a walk, she locks the door several times. Dealing with their memories has become part of their everyday life – underpinning it like the loud chime of the clock on the wall. (as)
