to uncover lost footage documenting Italian Jewish life before and after the
Holocaust.

contact them so the material may be digitized and catalogued. Contact information
may be found on their website at:http://www.cdec.it/home2_2.asp?idtesto=3D599

An article in the Jerusalem Post states collection points include: the Holocaust
Memorial of Milan; the Jewish Community of Turin; the Museum of Italian Judaism and
