What does it mean to remember the Holocaust in 2024? How do you bear the legacy of trauma while forging ahead in the 21st century?

Jane Elias grapples with these questions as she chronicles her relationship with her father, Beni, a Sephardic Jew from Greece who survived Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. When she realizes she may not be able to grant his wish to one day dance with his daughter at her wedding, she looks for another way to honor him, traveling to Poland to take part in the March of the Living. From her suburban upbringing in Long Island to her days as a single adult in New York City, DO THIS ONE THING FOR ME is an acutely observed portrait filled with tender humor, longing, and self discovery — a transcendental pas de deux between two generations and a daughter’s love letter to her dad.
