All Italian Jews Ordered Rounded Up and Sent to Concentration Camps

Timeline of History

Religious History

In Italy, all Jews are ordered rounded up and sent to concentration camps. Until now the treatment of Jews in Italy has been harsh, but not as bad as it was in Germany and in German-occupied areas.

With the surrender of Italy to the Allies on September 8, 1943, Germany has taken responsibility for administering Italy, and with that comes German decisions about how to handle Jews.
