Many women, killed by partners, had fled to shelters but went home when support ended.09:23 14.02.16 | 0 comments
Yes, there is anti-semitism in Italy, but the phenomenon is much less deep and dangerous than it is in the rest of Europe. During the war, the Italian FASCIST government refused to cooperate with Hitler's deportation orders for Italian Jews. All Italian-controlled areas of Europe were safety zones for European Jews who fled there. When they arrived the government issued them visas and false papers of Italian citizenship (!) Not one single Jew was deported from Italy until the Germans invaded Italy and took control. Joseph Rochlitz "The Righteous Enemy" (1987) documents the rescue activities of the Italian Army and government during the war. Also today, Italy shows far more public support for Israel than any other European country.
