Helen Icon Vienna In The Heavenlies, a film by Michelle Shelfer
Vienna In The Heavenlies

Nonagenarian Helen Breger fled as a young girl with her family from Vienna in 1938 shortly after the Nazi anschluss, or annexation of Austria. She now returns with her two adult daughters. What sort of welcome awaits them there after 74 years? Is reconciliation possible after such historical and personal family trauma? Can some spiritual truth be gleaned from going back to the city of Helen's birth? Filmmaker Michelle Shelfer records the unexpected journey, intertwining Helen's family history with the laughter and tears of their present day encounters.

Now all these things are from God,
who reconciled us to Himself through Messiah and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely,
that God was in Messiah reconciling the world to Himself,
not counting their trespasses against them,
and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
(2Corinthinians 5:18,19)
