Defying Evil: How the Italian Army Saved Holocaust Jews

It's a little-known story: how the Italian army saved Croatian Jews during the Holocaust.  Ben Wood stumbled across that line in a history book, and he started digging deeper.  History teacher Ben Wood talks about the surprising stories he found about the Italian Army and why they kept it hidden.  He talks about his overseas trip to uncover the truth and dig into his Jewish past, and why so few people know about this thread of Holocaust history.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
