There are places in Europe that have remained as painful memories of the past - factories where humans were turned into ash. These places are now memorial sites that are open to the public and receive thousands of tourists every year. Why do they go there? What are they looking for? The film’s title refers to the eponymous novel written by W.G. Sebald, dedicated to the memory of the Holocaust. This screening is part of 2021's Shaping the Past programming.
