"Cinema? My great tiring holiday", says the writer-poet Edith Bruck, receiving a standing ovation at the Nastri d'argento for documentaries.

He walks with difficulty, "I haven't left the house for five months, I have two broken bones but I couldn't miss it, I wanted at all costs to take off my pajamas, dress well and come and collect the prize", says one of the last people to survive the Holocaust still alive.

She is 92 years old and the documentary 'Edith' dedicated to her by Michele Mally won the Ribbon among Cinema, culture and entertainment documentaries (together with Io, noi e Gaber by Riccardo Milani), a film made by 3D Produzioni in collaboration with La7 and which the late Andrea Purgatori broadcast in an episode of his Atlantide.

The statuette "will find a place next to the one won many years ago by my husband, the great documentary filmmaker Nelo Risi, Dino's brother".

Bruck says: "I will write until the last minute of my life, a life that has been entirely conditioned by being a Holocaust survivor, proud to be a tireless witness among children for many years."

Last of six children of a poor Jewish family, born in a Hungarian village on the border with Slovakia, deported at 13 to Auschwitz and then to other German camps: Kaufering, Landsberg, Dachau, Christianstadt and, finally, Bergen-Belsen, where she was freed, together with her sister, in April 1945. Among others, the author of the autobiographical Pane Perduto also has a past as a director and screenwriter.

"I still have many projects - she concludes she - she. The Hungarian language still hurts me today, I freed myself from it by writing in Italian".
