Abstract:

In the immediate post-war period, the Italian press related to the Holocaust sporadically. Survivors returning to the country (the vast majority were members of the resistance) informed the newspapers about their experiences and, as part of their narratives, about the sufferings of the Jews. The papers published their testimonies, but seldom featured articles reflecting on the subject. The Jews were represented as victims of fascism, on the same level as partisans and the rest of Italian society, denying any specificity to their tragedy. Asserts that that attitude contributed to the creation of the foundation myth of the "bravo italiano" who was free of guilt for the persecution of the Jews. Concludes that this reflects a society that sees itself as not responsible in any way for the genocide, a society unable to cope with its past and to take responsibility for its actions.
