Önsöz 'film portrays five descendants of German exiles and accompanies them on a trip to Turkey shortly after the protests in Turkey in 2013 . The film opened the 21st Turkey / Germany Film Festival in Nuremberg in 2016 and was shown at the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Film Festival .


During National Socialism, Jewish scientists and intellectuals in particular were deprived of their posts by the “ Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service ”. Many of these scientists and intellectuals went into exile, not a few in Turkey. Among the expellees were Philipp Schwartz , Rudolf Belling , Otto Gerngroß , Alfred Heilbronn and Ernst Eduard Hirsch . Haymatloz accompanies their descendants Susan Ferenz-Schwartz , Elisabeth Weber-Belling, Engin Bagda (grandson of Otto Gerngroß), Kurt Heilbronn and Enver Tandoğan Hirsch.


After its German theatrical release on October 27, 2016, the film received mostly positive reviews. Fabian Tietke wrote in the taz that Önsöz had “succeeded in making a film that, by resorting to historical processes, rubs against well-established interpretive patterns of the present.” Toby Ashraf complains in indiekino that “in 2016 a film like this is still needed to make a to inform the German audience about the emigration history of the persecuted under the Nazi dictatorship. "Simon Hauck is delighted at kino-zeit that" fortunately, there was no tired talking heads collage. "
