The Forgotten Ones

A film that brings to light, for the first time, the Holocaust of the Jewry of former Yugoslavia. The Holocaust in Yugoslavia resulted in the slaying of 84% of the members of its Jewish community, who previously did not suffer any form of discrimination. Stella, the film's protagonist and a young Israeli born in Yugoslavia, researches the nature of the extermination of Jews in each region of Yugoslavia, the part played in it by the Germans, and the part played by the various nationalities that constitute Yugoslavia. In parallel, Stella explores the fate of her Muslim great-grandfather who saved Jews during the Holocaust and was therefore nominated as a Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem. The voyage crisscrosses all the provinces of the former Yugoslavia, with the route shown in animation on a map to orient the viewer.
