“One woman’s Holocaust secrets make for a powerful film.” – TIME

Born in a post war displaced persons camp and separated as toddlers, Shep and Izak grew up completely unaware of each other’s existence. Finally reunited six decades on, they start putting the pieces together. Their biological mother Aida holds key information about their identities that she refuses to share. When they finally find out, they understand why she kept quiet all those years. Aida’s Secrets tells an intriguing family story whilst pointing to the implications of the Holocaust for the people who survived it and their children.
