A special committee of the Jewish community in Rome published an appeal today for information pertaining to Jews who were arrested and deported during the German occupation. The committee will compile a list of the victims, possibly so that they may be traced later.
It is known that while the Germans were here they made at least one mass deportation of Jews, but thus far it has not been possible to determine whether other Jews who are still missing were deported individually or in small groups.
The problem is complicated by the fact that when the Germans began deportations, the entire Jewish community went into hiding, and presumably some of those still counted as missing have merely taken up residence elsewhere in Italy.
