"Negozio Ariano" - an "Aryan" shop in Italy. In November 1938, the first anti-Jewish measures are introduced by the Fascist regime of Benito Mussolini. During the early part of the war, Jews remain relatively safe in Italy itself and in territories under Italian occupation in France and Yugoslavia. Only after the German invasion in September 1943 are internment camps set up in Rome and northern cities, and some deportations to Auschwitz take place.
