Italian television will air a two-part miniseries next week about an Italian businessman who saved Jews in the Budapest ghetto during World War II. Giorgio Perlasca, who died in 1992, was a Fascist Party member who found himself in Budapest on business when the Nazis instituted the ghetto in 1944. He masqueraded as a Spanish diplomat and worked with Raoul Wallenberg and other neutral diplomats to provide false documents to Jews.
