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.
