“Lubo” by Giorgio Diritti, freely inspired by the novel “The Sower” by Mario Cavatore, delves into the persecution of minorities seeking refuge in Switzerland – a land known for its upright citizens and urban decorum. Here, between the 1930s and 1970s, the government launched a systematic assault on the nomadic Jenisch community. They executed and forcibly removed children via a national reeducation program for street kids (Hilfswerk für die Kinder der Landstrasse). These lost children were placed in orphanages, asylums, or homes where they were relegated to menial labor.
