Esther van Messel 1997 60'

Binjamin, the only child of his family to have survived Auschwitz, was adopted by a couple in Switzerland, where with a new name and the advice to forget his past, Benjamin grows to manhood. Some 50 years later an Orthodox Jew who lives in Israel arrives on the scene to say that he believes he might be Binjamin's father. Based on the book Bruchstücke (‚Fragments') by Binjamin Wilkomirski. Daniel Ganzfried's research led to the conclusion that Wilkomirski's biography was forged. Dschoint Ventschr therefore produced Our Jew by Daniel Wildmann as an exposé. Fremd Geboren can only be borrowed along with Our Jew.
