Class Lot

Private Hungary 11

Second episode of the Pető family saga 1946-1971. Mr. György Pető and his wife Éva survived the war and continued filming the family events, but in a very different way. Life was not the same….

How could families - like the Petős - suppress after the war what happened with them through the Shoah? How the did the Hungarian communist regime punish the middle classes - among them Jewish bourgeois - and tabooed the Nazi-Hungarian atrocities? What happened with the Petős after the war? Class Lot tells an ironic and tragic story through the eye of the post war generation...
