Rate this:
For several decades up until the 1980s, thousands of young Swiss people were thrown into jail without trial, sent to live with foster families or forced into children’s homes, or even sterilized. Their crime? Behavior that was judged to be threatening by a society obsessed with order and conformity. This documentary uses witness testimony, personal archives and original documentation to tell the story of the ordeal suffered by these children, and deciphers a political and social system that drove respectable citizens to exclude others for the sake of their own moral values..
