Italian-American Jews during WWII #general

David Laskin

A lot has been written about Italy's Jews during the Second World War,
but I'm curious about the experiences of Italian-American Jews. What
did they hear >from relatives in Italy? For those who were drafted,
what was their military experience like? I'm guessing some
Italian-American Jews were posted to Italy during the war -- I'm
curious about what that was like, how they felt about fighting against
their native country (this no doubt became more complicated after
Mussolini fell and Italy was taken over by the Germans). I'd love
hear >from Genners who have stories to tell.
Thank you. David Laskin, Seattle, WA
