Daniel Chanoch describes his perspective as that of an outsider—as someone who is different. The things he talks about are different, his memories are different. Chanoch is an Auschwitz survivor. After forty-four months in various concentration camps, he was liberated from Gunskirchen in 1945 at the age of twelve. Film material from the archive combines fragmentarily with recordings of Chanoch, a contemporary witness, and the memories of the individual ultimately become a fragment of a collective history.
