A public lecture by Michele Sarfatti, with an Introduction by David Kertzer.

On the anniversary of the Racial Laws in Italy, which initiated the systematic persecution of the Jews in Italy, this lecture examines some aspects of that persecution that have not yet been sufficiently investigated by Italian and international historiography. It therefore functions as a platform for further research. Themes for future research include, among other things, the demography and social status of Italian Jewry, the comparison of European anti-Jewish legislations in the 1930s, and the consequences of the knowledge of the extermination among high-ranking Italian authorities in the early months of 1943.
