On 16 October 1943, the roundup of the Jewish ghetto in Rome took place. 1,259 people were arrested, including 207 children. Most were deported and murdered. Yael Calo and Liz Toaff have brought together numerous documents from the period, including newspaper cuttings, drawings and photographs, as well as objects from everyday life, to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the roundup. It is the result of a lengthy project carried out in partnership with a number of institutions and archives in the Eternal City.
