Three women, three generations, three sets of aspirations: grandmother, mother and daughter. Social dependencies repeat and vary across the generations: What was it like living as a Jewish woman 50 years ago in the GDR, and what does it mean today?
Mother Tongue Mameloschn raises questions about the characters’ identity, where they belong and their homeland, all against the background of the latent anti-Semitism that was widespread in the GDR, of which the mother has bitter memories. Even if some things have changed since then and they now enjoy different freedoms, the questions about liberty and how to lead a self-determined life have remained the same.
