"Aren't there enough films on this subject already?"

Or "after 70 years, it's time for an end". We have often heard these words. But this film tries to trace the lives of Augsburg families who were active and respected personalities of the Augsburg City Society many years before 1933. Their businesses were known far beyond the borders of the city. Their history is important, even if it doesn't look that way at first. It belongs to us and to our city history.

We have not made it easy for ourselves, for example, to describe the Oberdorfer family's Augsburg umbrella manufactory in Maximilianstraße. At that time, umbrellas and sunshades were lovingly made by hand and were there to support their owners all their lives.


In our opinion, it is not enough to highlight the fate of the Jews between 1933 and 1945. Also their life before 1933 is important for us. We were interested in what happened to them and what happened to their houses and businesses.

What is this "silence" that "screams" more than 70 years later?  Are only the relatives of former persecutes affected?

A film that brings up questions that are always of elementary importance for the present and our future.
