Lecture: An Italian Renaissance: Jewish Refugees in Postwar Europe
The Fourth Annual Howard Adelman Lecture was recently held in Toronto, Canada on November 1, 2011 with guest speaker Robert Rubinstein, author of An Italian Renaissance: Choosing Life in Canada, Winner of the 2011 Canadian Jewish Book Award, in the category of Holocaust Literature.
A beautifully delivered talk on being a Jewish refugee in an Italian camp after the Second World War. As you listen, you realise that not much has changed over the last 60+ years in how camps are run, camp inhabitants treated, and how people try to cope in bureaucratic and sometimes unwelcoming administrations.
