In the course of the Twentieth century, the relations between Italy and the Jewish world were varied and complex. Among the important developments that should be considered, there are the experience of the Maritime School of Civitavecchia, fruit of the collaboration between the Fascist regime and the Jabotinsky’s Zionist Revisionist movement in the mid-Thirties, and the favorable attitude of the Italian authorities toward the Holocaust survivors and their illegal immigration to Palestine from the Italian coasts between 1945 and 1948. The testimony of Harry A. Hinden, a German Jew resident in Latvia and deported to a prison camp in the Soviet Union in 1941, gives a lively and original contribution to the knowledge of these two particular events in a chronicle that recalls the vicissitudes of a Jewish family involved in some of the great events of the history of the Twentieth century.
Keywords: Fascism, Zionism, World War I, prisoner-of-war camp in Ussr, Shoah, Jewish illegal immigration in Palestine 1945-1948
