The Man From There [האיש משם]

Author(s): Tuvia Arnan
Moish is a distant relative of Haim, his wife Dafna and their son Erez. Moish won't grow old and won't change his stripy pajamas. He comes for a surprise visit in order to make his dream come true: he wishes to move the old concentration camps to Israel. Haim sees commercial potential (that might help the family’s financial problems) and Moish gets assistance from Dafna’s brother, who is a cultural attaché in Germany. Dafna is against the plan since she doesn't want her home being turned into a memorial site for painful events.
