    • Synopsis
    • World renowned photographer, Yuri Dojc, returns to Slovakia, his home country which he left in 1968 following the Soviet invasion. He is on a journey of discovery of his roots and much much more. The encounters with people he photographs and places he visits lead him to an abandoned Jewish school where only the disintegrating dusty volumes remain on the shelves - the pupils and their parents were all deported to Auschwitz in 1942. By pure serendipity one of these books carries a stamp of Jakab Deutsch, a tailor from Michalovce- the photographer’s grandfather, a man whom he never met and he now has something that truly belongs to him.
