The Jewish Question

Giovanni Orsina and Andrea Ungari

The “Jewish Question” in the Territories Occupied by Italians


edited by Giovanni Orsina and Andrea Ungari
Collana: Viella Historical Research, 16
Pubblicazione: Dicembre 2019
This volume deals with a topic at central to the Italian historiographical debate, namely the Italian authorities’ attitude in the occupied territories during the Second World War and, in particular, towards the local Jewish communities. Through a reconstruction that is the result of authors with different sensitivities and historiographic approaches, the contradictory nature of the application of anti-Jewish legislation by Italian authorities emerges; an application that went from protection to more or less rigid internment up to handing them over to German authorities. A historiographically innovative book, therefore, that aims to shed light on one of the most dramatic events of the Second World War: the persecution of the Jewish population.
