Synopsis
Op 2 oktober 1944 zag mijn oma als veertienjarig meisje hoe haar vader, samen met 658 andere mannen, per trein werd weggevoerd uit Putten. Hij keerde nooit meer terug. Nu is zij 86 jaar en als enige van haar familie nog in leven. Terwijl mijn oma haar herinnering deelt kijken we in de ogen van veertienjarige meisjes van nu, vol eigen verhalen en met een onbevangen blik vooruit. 
On October 2nd, 1944, my grandmother, then a fourteen-year-old girl, saw how her father, along with 658 other men, was deported by train from their village in Putten, the Netherlands. He never came back. Now she is 86 years old and the only member of her family still alive. While my grandmother shares her memories, we look into the eyes of girls who are fourteen years old now, full of stories of their own and with their open glance forward.
