Hella de Jonge didnâ€™t always get on with her 88-year-old father. When he had to move recently, she acquired the legacy of her great-aunt, who survived the Nazi terror along with Hellaâ€™s parents. A publicity photo from 1885 of her great-grandfather as part of a comic duo then inspired Hella to investigate the history of her family.
With the aid of photos and documents, a videotape of Hellaâ€™s motherâ€™s testimony made as part of Steven Spielbergâ€™s Shoah project, conversations and visits to places with painful memories, father and daughter have grown closer together.
