Six stories, six protagonists. Leading the journey is Roly Kornblit – whose personal and family history starts in Tel Aviv, the city where he was born and raised – in search of six “grandchildren of the Shoah” who live in Italy, his country of adoption. Heirs of a common past.

An intimate and touching story that attempts to offer a new interpretation of the legacy of the Holocaust, with the aim of telling why this legacy belongs to all of us and how and how much the Holocaust has settled in the private and public lives of grandchildren of the survivors, influencing their personal choices and participation in social and civil life.
