Jew Among 37 Dead Honored by Mussolini

A Florentine Jew, numbered among thirty-seven Fascist heroes, received State honors when the bodies of the thirty-seven earliest followers of Benito Mussolini were interred yesterday in the Santa Croce Cathedral at Florence. He was Gino Bolaffi, a follower of II Duce since the inception of the Fascist movement.

Premier Mussolini was present at the elaborate services which were also attended by representatives of the Florence Jewish community.
