This book is written in the first person, which makes it very readable. No one who participated in the rescue operation ever betrayed it. Plot [ ] In the Italian town of Assisi during World War II, 300 Jews were sheltered and protected by a peasant turned priest, Father Rufino Niccacci.
He dressed many of them as monks and nuns, taught them ritual, and hid them in the monasteries.
This book makes it clear that at least some Catholic priests and bishops took enormous risks to shelter and hide Jews fleeing from Nazi efforts to round them up and ship them out of Italy.
The town's printing press, which during the day printed posters and greeting cards, at night clandestinely printed false documents that were sent by courier to Jews all over Italy.
Ultimately the SS got suspicious, imprisoned him, and threatened him with death, but he was saved by a sympathetic Catholic Nazi commander.
I have to say that rereading The Assisi Underground not only from the angle of studying the negotiations in the book but also after I've lived in Assisi for a year, it was a completely different experience.
