Paper Lives. The Little Known Story of Foreign Jews Interned in Italy
Presentation: Anna Pizzuti, curator of the database and historical portal on foreign Jews in Italy during World War II, presents her work.
Film screening: E42 by Cynthia Madansky, produced during her fellowship at the American Academy in Rome. The film is centered on the story of Katja Tenenbaum, who was born in a town South of Rome where her parents were interned as foreign Jews. Casting Tenenbaum’s reflection against those of Hannah Arendt, — whose work is Tenenbaum’s focus as a scholar— the film poses questions on displacement, memory and oblivion. 

January 27th 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Consulate General of Italy in New York

Ceremony of the reading of the names of the Jews deported from Italy and Italian territories.
On January 27, 2017 between 9 am and 3 pm, diplomats, institutional representatives and civil society will read the names of all Jewish men, women and children deported from Italy and Italian controlled territories during the Fascist-Nazi persecution. During the ceremony we will read brief accounts of the lives of men, women and children whom the Nazi and Fascist regimes had labeled as “foreign Jews” or “stateless Jews”. Some of them arrived in Italy in an attempt to leave Europe, remained trapped and were eventually deported to Auschwitz. The stories have been collected by Anna Pizzuti starting with the book Paper Lives. The ceremony will be held on the sidewalk of Park Avenue in front of the Consulate General of Italy.

February 8, 2017 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm.
Italian Academy

Holocaust Remembrance: Looted Art, Nazism, and Fascism.
Europe and the United Nations commemorate the victims of the Shoah each winter on the date of Auschwitz's liberation in 1945, and the Italian Academy marks Holocaust Remembrance Day with an annual academic event exploring issues of discrimination and crimes against humanity. In previous years, the Academy broadened its focus to explore groups that were targeted in the racism and xenophobia of the Nazi and Fascist regimes, and that suffered and died along with the millions of Jews. This year, the symposium will focus on looted art under the Nazi and Fascist regimes.
