IMAGINE ELIZABETH BETTINA'S SURPRISE when she discovered that her grandmother's village had a secret: over a half century ago, many of Campagna's residents defied the Nazis and risked their lives to shelter and save hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust. What followed her discovery became an adventure as she uncovered fascinating untold stories of Jews in Italy during World War II and the many Italians who risked everything to save them. "Finally, somebody made known the courage and the empathy of the majority of the Italian people toward us Jews at a time of great danger." —Nino Asocoli
