Luca Fenoglio Lectures on Rescue Activities in Italian-Occupied Southeastern France

Luca Fenoglio, the 2016 Martin and Rhoda Safer/JDC Archives Fellow, gave his lecture, “Rescue through Collaboration: The Rescue Activities of the Comité d’Aide aux Refugiés in Italian-Occupied Southern France.” Also known as Comité Dubouchage, the committee helped Jews prior to the great roundup across Vichy France of August 1942. It later assisted Jewish refugees in the Italian occupation zone between November 1942 and September 1943. The lecture surveyed the organization’s origins and activities, and examined the roles of some of the Comité’s most prominent members.

The JDC Archives Fellowships allow scholars engaged in graduate level, post-doctoral, or independent study to conduct research in the JDC Archives, either in New York or Jerusalem. All fellows give a public presentation on their research; watch more of these JDC fellowship lectures here.
