Undated handout shows holocaust survivors Bella Katz and Regina Karolinski (oma) in their kitchen, the setting for their documentary "Oma & Bella"
This undated promotional handout picture shows holocaust survivors Bella Katz (R) and Regina Karolinski (Oma) holding a container of herring in the kitchen of the Berlin apartment they share, the setting for "Oma & Bella", a documentary about their cooking and its connection to their past. Scenes from the new documentary "Oma & Bella" about two octogenarian friends living together in Berlin are warm, but the hunger to learn more about their past as Holocaust survivors creates a suspenseful undercurrent throughout the film, which is being released on iTunes and Amazon in the United States on Tuesday. The sometimes jarring shifts from cozy kitchen scenes of chopping and sauteing to starkly lit interviews in which they reluctantly reveal some of the horrors they survived as Jewish girls in World War Two are purposeful, filmmaker Alexa Karolinski said.
