HOLOCAUST MUSEUM HOUSTON says
“My Italian Secret” compiles the little-known stories of Jews who lived or sought refuge in Italy during World War II and the Italians who helped them after German troops occupied the northern half of the country in 1943. Through these witnesses’ stories, viewers revisit a time when an entire continent was engulfed in genocide. The film personifies the actions of individual Italians, from everyday citizens to clergy and government officials and famous people such as Gino Bartali. These people rescued thousands of Jews from deportation and death, hiding and protecting them despite risks to their own lives and families. This event is part of the Ann and Stephen Kaufman Jewish Book and Arts Fair Nov. 1-15 , 2015. For more information, visit http://www.erjcchouston.org/arts/jewish-book-arts-fair/.
