The Jews of Rome, 1943: "Of One Thousand Persons Only Sixteen Survived"

Via Lungara, 7 Feb 2006 (Philips) C.S.

Plaque about 100 yards outside the Vatican walls:

"The 16th of October 1943
whole families of Roman Jews
dragged from their homes by the Nazis
were concentrated
in this building
and deported
to the extermination camps.

Of one thousand persons
only sixteen survived."
