The tracks of our history from 1933 to 1945.

Immigrant antifascists and refugees in Switzerland: their living conditions; their work in camps and illegal circles. The Swiss who accommodated them and who support their resistance work as printers or transporters of illegal documents, messengers across the border or through donations.

The vanishing tracks: documents, texts, films; memories, scenes of actions, monuments. Counterpoints to the image of Switzerland as a country of asylum.
