What is Left?

  • Emma Klein


Because of the persecution and the anti-racial laws in Mussolini’s Italy my parents did a religious wedding and my father was baptised. Before my arrival my mother wanted to separate but she changed completely and wanted to help when she saw my father was in danger. He couldn’t bear the humiliation, like when a woman spat at him in the lift and said ‘I don’t go in the lift with a Jew.’ He escaped to Switzerland at the right moment so I didn’t see him till the end of the war. Only some time after the war I realised it was because he was a Jew.
