“THE STORY OF A HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR
IN GERMANY AND ITALY”--

Walter Wolff Presents His Experiences in a Slide-Lecture
at Queens College November 10

FLUSHING, NEW YORK, October 23, 2003 -- The Queens College John D. Calandra Italian American Institute and its Center for Jewish Studies present Walter Wolff on Monday, November 10, who will tell “The Story of a Holocaust Survivor in Germany and Italy.” Mr. Wolff will present his personal experience in a slide-lecture at Queens College, Student Union Building, 4th Floor, at 12 noon. His lecture is free and open to all. There is no assigned seating.

Unlike the Nazis, Mussolini and his Fascist army were never convinced anti-Semites. Their awareness of Hitler’s torture of the Jews struck hard against the Italians’ humanitarian vein. As a result, Mussolini often stalled on Hitler’s requests for Jews, or hid Jews from the Nazis. In his lecture, Mr. Wolff will relate the efforts of the Italian military to hide and protect him during World War II. His experience uncovers a neglected history and adds a new interpretation to the subject.

This lecture is supported in part by a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities.
