The Two Lives of Eva

The Two Lives of Eva
1:25:00 | 2006

Categories: History, Biography, Politics

In this emotionally moving and revelatory documentary, Esther Hoffenberg investigates the early life of her mother, Eva (née Lamprecht), interviewing her friends, relatives and acquaintances, and scrutinizing her mother's tape-recorded reminiscences, family photos, home movies, letters and other documents, to reveal how emotional traumas rooted in Eva's experiences during WWII eventually tragically affected not only her, but also her entire family.

Born in Poland to parents of Germany nationality, Eva was a young woman during the German invasion and occupation of Poland. As a member of a wealthy Lutheran family, whose industrialist father collaborated with the Nazis to keep his paper mill operating, Eva lived a protected life, although she was aware of the deportation of Poland's Jews, including one of her closest friends, to Nazi concentration camps.
