"FROM THESSALONIKI TO AUSCHWITZ - 80 YEARS" - A Historical Commemoration 

Rosina, Iossif, Eftyhia, Shelly and Marios grew old, carrying the memory of thousands of children: those who were never given the time to grow up.

The movie follows these people from childhood to the old age, revealing their hidden stories and invaluable personal documents – a diary of a child, photographs, home movies, etc. It also depicts the life of the Greek Jewish Communities before the War, complemented with rare images of Occupied Greece from archival material, as well as amateur films by German soldiers and once-illegal footage shot by Greek patriots.  

 It's a film about childhood in the shadow of the Holocaust.
