Generations- part 2

This is the next instalment of stills from my filmic explorations of the four generations of women in my family.

Here my grandmother and my daughter, looking together at my grandmother’s memoir, which she spent 10 years writing up. The book includes a number of photographs, and other personal mementos, including my grandfather’s letters to her from forced labour camp in Munich, Germany, where he was in “total deployment (totaleinsatz) for 2 years, until his escape just before the end of the war.
