Thousands of Jewish survivors arrived in Southern Italy after WWII on their way to Israel where they were welcomed by the local Italians and took up temporary residence. During this transitory phase, hundreds of children were born in the maternity hospital of the displaced persons camp in Santa Maria di Leuca. The film follows the story of three Israeli women who were born there in 1946 and return to discover the footprints left by their parents. The film weaves rare
historical footage with unique current testimonials capturing a ray of light after great darkness. Sponsored by the Cornell Institute for European Studies. Subtitled. More at
