Irma's time,
by Alenka Maly and Roland Freinschlag, Austria 2007, 33 min,
Irma Trksak was born in Vienna in 1917. She was arrested by the Gestapo in 1941 for resistance in a group of Viennese Czechoslovakians and deported to the Ravensbrück concentration camp for women. For decades she has been working as secretary of the Ravensbrück camp community and as a contemporary witness, passing on her political life experience to the next generations. The film "Irma's Time" by Alenka Maly and Roland Freinschlag accompanies her on a journey through Upper Austria as a contemporary witness, documenting the constant, tireless recollection of agonizing, almost unspeakable horrors in the service of enlightenment. Between rural classrooms and hotel rooms, Irma Trksak opens doors to insight into the Nazi past, leading the audience to the Siemens camp and the Uckermark extermination camp. It is Irma's respectfully captured
Energy and insistence that epitomizes lifelong political resistance political resistance.
