Jewish Holocaust Refugees in Italy #general


In the 1930s and early 1940s thousands of Jews >from all over Europe fled to
Italy, both because conditions were better there and the hope that they
could flee further to Palestine or elsewhere. For example, there were well
over a hundred Jews who had been born in Berlin. Ultimately, foreign Jews
had to register and these registrations provide the information gathered by
Anna Pizzuti and made available at On this website go
to Database and then La pagina della ricersa. Each listing includes
information on family members and place where they were registered/imprisoned.

While this website does not usually include the fate of these individuals,
in fact. relatively few were deported to German death camps and in most
cases it is possible to determine what happened both to deportees and
survivors >from International Tracing Service files.
