Summary: 

While the first five decades of the postwar Italian cinematic production furnished relatively little on the subject of the Shoah, recent years have witnessed a surge of Holocaust related films. This study explores the factors behind this development, and provides analyses of works devoted to Fascist anti-Semitism, and the Final Solution for Italy’s Jewish population.
