Silence and Remembering.jpgGian Paolo Brizzi has retraced the story of some 490 foreign Jewish students, studying at the University of Bologna at the time when the racial laws were passed. The aim is to shed light on an ignominious event that has to date escaped the attention of all those who have written and commented on events in that tragic period... As the third millenium gets under way, virtually the whole of the younger generation is unaware of events of the kind presented by the author. The racial laws stand witness to the dangers of passively submitting to impositions that would mark the beginning of even more ghastly developments.
