ART MOMENT

#ARTMOMENT: Shana Tova! This is the beginning of the Jewish New Year, #RoshHashanah. During the Nazi Occupation of Italy, #Assisi established an underground network to protect several hundred Jews who were in danger of being deported by Nazis. Churches, monasteries and convents of Assisi served as a safe haven, while the local printing press was used secretly at night to print papers of transit. Not a single refugee was captured in Assisi. #FatherRufinoNiccacci #SanDamiano #AssisiNetwork #ColonelValentinMüller #ARTMOMENT: Shana Tova! Questo è l’inizio dell’anno nuovo ebreo, #RoshHashanah. Durante l’occupazione tedesca dell’Italia, #Assisi organizzò un modo per salvare diverse centinaia di Ebrei, in pericolo di essere deportati dai Nazisti nei campi di concentramenento. Chiese, monasteri e conventi di Assisi vennero usati come un rifugio sicuro, mentre, nelle ore notturne, venivano stampati documenti falsi con la stampante utilizzata per produrre i giornali locali. Non un singolo ebreo venne catturato ad Assisi. #FatherRufinoNiccacci #SanDamiano #AssisiNetwork #ColonelValentinMüller
