Aliya Bet from Italia 1945 – 1948
Wednesday, 28. September 2016 - 15:05
Aliya Bet was made possible by the immigrants' perseverance, effective organization, and the persuasiveness of Ada Sereni vis-à-vis the Italian establishment. However, more than anything else, it was the human warmth, generosity, and help which Italians of all walks of life offered the refugees. The ships sailed from Il Salento, Civitavecchia, Ancona, Trieste, and La Spezia.
The exhibition will display testimonies, photographs, documents, films, recordings, personal items.
