An online exhibition to show how Italian cartoonists have represented the Shoah through historical research and first-hand accounts.
As 27 January approaches, the Holocaust Remembrance Day, theItalian Cultural Institute of Tel Avivpresents ‘La memoria disegnata. La Shoah nel fumetto italiano’ (Illustrated Memory: The Shoah in Italian Comics).
A journey to discover how, in Italy, cartoonists have represented – through historical research and eyewitness accounts – the fate of the Jewish people during fascism and Nazism: from the introduction of Fascist racial laws in 1938 in Trieste, to the exploits of Jan Karski and Giorgio Perlasca, up to the indelible marks left in the post-war period by the writer Primo Levi in his memoirs.
The exhibition will be featured on the Facebook and Instagram pages of the Cultural Institute from 17 January to 4 February and is curated by MaMa Comics.
