Drawing on the diary that he kept for the pivotal year 1943, Enzo Tayar recounts the impact on his family and friends of the increasingly severe anti-Jewish measures instituted by Italy and of the German invasion of their former ally. For safety, Tayar fled his once tranquil Florence separately from his sister and parents, taking refuge on a succession of farms throughout Tuscany. They were not reunited until after the Allied conquest of Italy. After liberation, Tayar served as a U.S. Army interpreter, taking part in the interrogation of Fascists as a prelude to postwar prosecutions.
