Duration 49’
Film director: Ruggero Gabbai

The film “Eravamo Italiani” collects the witnesses of Italian survivors who, after the death of Primo Levi, began to speak within the project of the Archive of the memory of the CDEC with the authors Marcello Pezzetti and Liliana Picciotto, directed by Ruggero Gabbai.The production company, Forma International, has combined the three main productions on the theme of the Shoah succeeding in composing a unique and complete synthesis that traces the tragic events of the racial laws, persecution and deportation in the extermination camps of the Italian Jews .

The witnesses of Memory, The Longest Journey and Fossoli, intertwine and make alive the most Italian character of the Nazi-Fascist persecutions, focusing on the testimony and its history as a personal and collective story. “Eravamo Italiani”, designed almost entirely by these three films, is characterized by essential testimonies that often occur in places of deportation, arrest and extermination. The style of the film is marked by the immediacy of the story and by a direction that leads an "invisible troupe", to gather an intimate and true narration.

“Eravamo Italiani” was produced during the Italian Presidency of the IHRA - International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance by the IHRA delegation, the MEIS - National Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah and the CDEC - Center of Contemporary Jewish Documentation.
