Event description

Description

On the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2019, the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute invite you to the US Premiere of 1938: Diversi, a documentary by Academy Award nominated director Giorgio Treves.

1938-2018: eighty years have passed since the Fascist regime’s promulgation of the racial laws. An important and unfortunately still highly relevant anniversary. The Italian people, who have not traditionally been anti-Semitic, were induced by Fascist propaganda to accept the persecution of a minority that had been living peacefully in Italy for centuries. What made that possible?

Presented at the 2018 Venice Film Festival, 1938: Diversi sets out to describe what the implementation of those laws meant for Italian Jews and how the population, both Jewish and non-Jewish, reacted to racism and persecution.

The screening will be followed by a conversation featuring director Giorgio Treves and Leslie Swift and Dr. Patricia Heberer Rice, respectively Chief of Film, Oral History, and Recorded Sound and Senior Historian at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The discussion will be moderated by Susan Barocas, writer, filmmaker and former Director of the Jewish Film Festival in Washington DC.
