Last month, EHRI's Italian partner the Foundation Jewish Contemporary Documentation Center CDEC published six extraordinary testimonies of survivors of the rounding up of Jews on October 16th, 1943 - the infamous “Black Saturday”, an indelible event in the memory of the Roman Jews.

The testimonies, recorded on five 33 vinyl discs, were recently found by Laura Brazzo, Head of the CDEC Archive and the CDEC Digital Library, during a re-organization of the CDEC Archive.

More details about this discovery can be found on the website of Shalom, the magazine of the Roman Jewish community.
