Second Generation An animated film based on the true story of a Holocaust survivor's son Adapted from the graphic novel Second Generation: What I did not tell my father by Michel Kichka ((illustrator and cartoonist born in 1954) published in 2012 by DARGAUD. In the form of a comic, the artist tells about his relationship with his father Henri, the only survivor of the Holocaust in his family. The narrative, conducted from the son’s point of view, shows that the father’s experience of Auschwitz significantly affected both the lives of individual members of the post-war family as well as many aspects of their life, such as the up-bringing of children, communal eating and celebration of holidays. Originally released in French, the book has been translated in German, Italian and Yiddish, and will be soon adapted in English.
