  • During World War II, the Italian Army interned Jews rather than sending them to death camps in Germany. This film describes the many lengths the Italian officials went to save Jews. It shows how Italian officials prevented the deportation of some 40,000 Jews in Italian occupied France, Greece, and Yugoslavia. While the Italians could not save them all, their defiance of Mussolini and government orders did protect many lives.
