An Israeli historian, combing Italian and French archives, reconstructs the way Fascist officials in Italian-occupied areas during the war tried to protect Jews who were Italian citizens from Nazi terror and deportation. A good study, with much new material, that does not mention the major preceding work, Jonathan Steinberg's All or Nothing, which was so much richer in nuance. Still, a heartening book -- for the specialist.
