The life of Heda Margolius Kovály was so fraught with bad luck that it seems scripted. Born in Prague into a Jewish family, she married lawyer Rudolph Margolius, but both were soon deported to the Lódz ghetto and then to Auschwitz, where they were separated. They miraculously survived, only to fall into the hands of Stalinism. Treštíková illustrates Heda’s painful account with rare archives, giving heft to the old woman’s words. Behind the individual story looms 20th-century European history and its totalitarian regimes.

1st prize in the category of document-independent program - Czech Film and Television Academy in 2002
