From the spring of 1942 to the autumn of 1943, the Italian fascist regime established a concentration camp for civilians in Gonars, a small town near Palmanova in northeast Italy. During the 18 months of its existence, more than 400 prisoners died, including 71 infants. The events that took place at Gonars were documented through the drawings of children and painters who were incarcerated there. This film gives a voice to child survivors of the camp, recording their eyewitness accounts and testimony after six decades. They recall their memories of physical and mental suffering: the constant hunger, thirst and cold they endured and their loss of identity and human dignity. How did their experiences scar them and how do these people, victims of a ruined childhood, live today?
