For more than fifty years, Giacomo Debenedettis October 16, 1943 has been considered one of the best and most accurate accounts of the shockingly brief and efficient roundup of more than one thousand Roman Jews from the oldest Jewish community inMoreFor more than fifty years, Giacomo Debenedettis October 16, 1943 has been considered one of the best and most accurate accounts of the shockingly brief and efficient roundup of more than one thousand Roman Jews from the oldest Jewish community in Europe for the gas chambers of Auschwitz.

Completed a year after the event, Debenedettis intimate details and vivid glimpses into the lives of the victims are especially poignant because Debenedetti himself was there to witness the event, which forced him and his entire family into hiding.Eight Jews, the companion piece to October 16, 1943, was written in response to testimony about the Ardeatine Cave Massacres of March 24, 1944. In this essay, Debenedetti offers insights into that grisly horror and into assumptions about racial equality. Both of these stunning works are appearing together, along with Alberto Moravias preface to Debenedettis October 16, 1943, for the first time in an American translation.

October 16, 1943/Eight Jews gives American readers a first glimpse into the extraordinary mind of the man who was Italys foremost critic of twentieth-century literature.In addition to probing the deeper, haunting questions of the Holocaust, Debenedetti briefly describes the seizure of the Roman Jewish communitys library of early manuscripts and incunables, the most valuable Jewish library in all of Italy.

Following the roundup, this library was never seen again. Award-winning translator Estelle Gilson offers an additional essay on the history of the library and modern-day attempts to locate it.October 16, 1943/Eight Jews is a moving work that will continue to challenge readers long after they have closed its pages.
