Abstract:

Between the end of 1943 and the beginning of 1944, under the regime of the Repubblica Sociale Italiana, a young nurse working for the Red Cross, Luisa Colombo, was allowed to enter the jail of the city of Como, where many Jews were incarcerated until they were transferred to the camp of Fossoli and later deported to other camps. She assisted the Jewish prisoners, and helped four of them (Viktor Altaras, Mayer Chaim Relles, Gualtiero Schubert and Fritz Michaelis) to escape by putting a stair on the terrace of the lower floor of the prison. Based on interviews with Luisa Colombo Andreani and with survivors and their relatives, and based on documents of the State Archive of Como, reconstructs episodes from the lives of the prisoners. Contains, also, a list with the names of 35 prisoners as well as information about their fate, letters, testimonies, a short description of the camp of Fossoli di Carpi and Auschwitz, and information given by Adriano Bazzocco (pp. 99-108) about the crossing of refugees (Jews and non-Jews) over the border between Italy and Switzerland.
