In Fragile Moments / The Last Time
“I am no longer who I used to be…. All I have left is hope.”
Born two hundred kilometres away from each other and two years apart, the lives of both Zsuzsanna Fischer and Eva Steinberger are thrown into chaos when Germany occupies Hungary and destroys their peaceful homes. In the spring of 1944, as eighteen-year-old Zsuzsanna and sixteen-year-old Eva are forced into ghettos and then to Auschwitz-Birkenau, they each take refuge in the one constant in their lives – their older sisters. While Zsuzsanna frantically documents the end of the war in her diary, pages that she will return to when faced with the trauma of post-war revolution in Hungary, Eva barely escapes death and, shattered by so many tragedies, dreams of finding freedom and family. Two stories etched in pain and hope, In Fragile Moments and The Last Time mirror the remarkable differences in similar paths of survival.
