Synopsis

At the age of 9, artist Vivienne Hermann was caught in a mass arrest on the streets of Prague and subsequently spent 5 years in forced labor camps in Czechoslovakia and Poland before being liberated by the Russians in 1945. “The Holocaust didn’t stop when I was liberated,” says Hermann, whose art aims to show the “longevity of the Holocaust.” Through interviews with Hermann and her son, family photographs and letters, and images of Hermann’s work, the film responds to its eponymous question with a resounding “Yes!” As Hermann says in one scene: “I am the poem. I may be a tragic poem. I may be an irritating poem. But I am the poem.”
