In Italy's occupied territories — Yugoslavia, and the South of France and Greece — fifty high-ranking Italian diplomats and generals do what they can in order to help Jews escape Hitler's "final solution". This remarkable documentary follows events from 1940 until the declaration of the armistice between the US and Italy on September 8th, 1943.

The event is presented in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy in Ottawa.
