Michla and Feiv’ke Schwarz, sister and brother, could have re-met in Lodz in 1945. But they didn’t. She migrated to a Jewish state in the Middle East and founded a family there, while he returned to Germany, changed his name to Peter, married a German woman and lived the rest of his life in the camp where he was once a prisoner. Two families, in Germany and Israel, not knowing about each other for years, are strangely mirrored. Farewell Herr Schwarz constructs and de-constructs a family myth and suggests a new explanation to our unexplained urge to cling onto stories.
