VOLEVO SOLO VIVERE
Directed by : Mimmo CALOPRESTI
Year of production : 2006 Country : ITALY, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SWITZERLAND Length : 82 minutes
Nine Italian citizens survive deportation and internment in the Auschwitz death camps. Nine stories through which we follow the most significant events of this harrowing experience: the enactment of theracial laws in Italy, the futile escape attempts, the deportation, the separation from other family members, the miraculous survival in
Auschwitz, and liberation with the arrival of the allied soldiers.
Words that we may not be hearing for the first time, but which narrate the many aspects of these tragic accounts: from the most intimate and personal to the more well-known and cruel. These individuals, through their testimonies, are not afraid to reveal feelings of tenderness and compassion, as well as moments of happiness.
