Past present and future mix in this eloquent and surprisingly humorous portrait of documentary filmmaker David Fisher and his siblings, as they retrace the footsteps of their late fathera Holocaust survivor who was interned in Gusen and Gunskirchen, Austria. This remarkable journey to Austria by the Fisher siblings reminds us that history and memory require active discussion among the later generations. They joke, kibitz and quarrel, and remind us that history and memory require active discussion among the later generations.

"Six Million and One is magnificent. I laughed and cried, cried and laughed. It is very moving and very powerful. I learned a lot not only about the past, but about living with the past." ~Michael Berenbaum, Professor of Jewish Studies, American Jewish University
"A portrait of the conflicted, yet deeply loving dynamic among the children of a Holocaust survivor.their warmly combative, often darkly humorous debates prove rare, revelatory and intensely absorbing." ~Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
