Assisi Clandestina, Holocaust Salvation in the Town of St. Francis – February 6th, 2021
In 1943-1944, the town of St. Francis, Assisi, sheltered hundreds of Jewish refugees. Visit with me the frescoed convents and sites sacred to St. Francis where the refugees were hidden. All were saved thanks to the united efforts of the bishop, a local priest, two printers, Franciscans, cloistered Poor Clare nuns – and a world-famous Tuscan cyclist.
Meet each of these heroes – and a grateful survivor as well – as you join me for the fascinating story of Assisi Clandestina.
