Inge Stanton thought she would never return to her hometown. The very thought of doing so made her shudder. Why? Because Inge grew up as a Jewish girl in Nazi Germany, a place filled with danger and uncertainty for her and her entire family. Now, it is July 2016 and Inge has decided to go back to the place that tried to kill her, but she is not alone— her children and grandchildren are by her side. Walking through Nuremberg, seeing the concentration camp Buchenwald, visiting her hometown's destroyed Jewish cemetery, and retracing the footsteps of her childhood, Inge brings her family and her audience on a journey through time, making witnesses out of all of us.
