“Little Jerusalem” is how locals refer to the Italian town of Pitigliano in southern Tuscany, because of its striking resemblance to Israel's ancient city. Through the medieval stone walls, the fascinating story of 400 years of harmonic co-existence between Jews and Christians is told for the first time, leading to the heroic acts done by the locals during the time of the Holocaust. Watch the trailer here.
