Some European landscapes belong to the painful memory of the past. We refer to the factories of horror where human beings were turned into ash. Today these places are centres of commemoration and pilgrimage, open to the public and with thousands of tourists every year. This documentary observes the people who visit one of those places of the memory, a former concentration camp. Why do they go there? What are they looking for?
