Camaradas (Comrades)

On the night of September 7th, 1950 the police take to the streets of several cities in France. Four hundred people, who just a few years earlier had fought and bled until death to rid the world of Fascism, are arrested and deported from France. The subtle hand of the United States was behind this operation.
That violation of basic human rights remains unresolved because the last of those comrades is still deported and forgotten in the same place where in a hostile way, democracy placed him and for what he fought in World War II.
Camaradas, or Comrades, is a Basque documentary on this event (showing many berets in the process).
