“Every great war correspondent dreams of telling a story like “The Traitor’s Daughter”. Part detective work, part personal history, it traces to the journey of one woman’s struggle to survive World War 2 first as a Red Army soldier then a prisoner of war in a German concentration camp. It is a healing narrative helping the filmmaker better understand a past shrouded in secrets of a woman who dominated her life – her mother. Ghosts stalk every battlefield and attempting to tell their stories is like chasing shadows. As the former CBS News Afghanistan correspondent based in Kabul for 3 years, I covered almost every aspect of war – deaths, disease, heroism and horror but the ones that matter most often escape the headlines, the personal stories of a war that helps us makes sense of the past. The Traitor’s Daughter such a story.”
