The director's mother, Mirka Mora, avoided Auschwitz by one day. On his father's side many perished in the Holocaust. These facts triggered three visits to Auschwitz by Mora from 2010 to 2014 in an effort to understand and remember.

In 2010 I visited Auschwitz and Birkenau concentration camps for the first time and filmed the visit. I knew many of my relatives had been killed there. Incredibly, that year I also found over 250 documents from Poland and Leipzig, documenting the fate of seven Morawski family members. In 2012, I revisited the camps again with my friend Harald Grosskopf, with whom I had made the documentary German Sons. The two visits triggered an ongoing personal investigation into the matrix of Holocaust Restitution, with the Morawskis, my murdered family, as a portal into the shocking world of Nazi barbarism and looting. With billions of dollars unaccounted for, for millions of victims and heirs, the issue remains an open wound, the legacy of unprecedented crimes against humanity. This film documents this odyssey into the heart of evil, past and present.Written by
Yes. I certainly do agree that the horrors which regularly occurred at Auschwitz during WW2 were, indeed, undeniably monstrous. It was, literally, inhumanity beyond comprehension.
But, with that said - I seriously think that director, Philippe Mora should have rethought his approach to making this personalized documentary presentation before he completed it.
What was intended to be looked upon as being "Three Days in Auschwitz" ended up seeming more like 3 endless years of a personal reminiscence from an incoherent hell.
This 55-minute production's story could've easily been told in about 15 minutes, tops. And, Eric Clapton's "out-of-sync" twangy-guitar soundtrack did absolutely nothing to liven up this mighty grim reminder one bit.
