Rome’s Jewish community marked the 56th anniversary of Nazi deportations with a silent march through the center of the city. The march, which also protested any form of racism and discrimination, ended with a candle-lit rally in front of the main Rome synagogue. The Nazis rounded up and deported to Auschwitz more than 1,000 Roman Jews on Oct. 16, 1943. Only 16 returned alive.
