Oma & Bella

Oma & Bella

“For everyone who had a Jewish grandmother, or wanted one, there’s Oma & Bella to help them remember.” — Variety

Holocaust survivors and Berlin residents, Regina (Oma) Karolinski and Bella Katz, have been inseparable friends for two generations. Creating food for the soul in their kitchen using traditional recipes, their love of these home-cooked dishes is the only remaining visceral link to a childhood cruelly stolen during World War Two. Made by Oma’s granddaughter, Alexa Karolinski, this touching documentary follows these courageous and spirited women through their daily lives as they share their stories and a love of food.
