Yorkshire Post - - UK & ABROAD | CLASSIFIED DIRECTORY -

ITALY: Piero Ter­racina, the last Ro­man Jew among Italy’s Holo­caust sur­vivors and one of the last Ital­ian Jewish sur­vivors, has died at the age of 91.

As a 15-year-old, he es­caped the round-up of Rome’s Jews in 1943 and went into hid­ing with his fam­ily. But the next year he was ar­rested and de­ported to Auschwitz with his fam­ily, where his par­ents, three sib­lings and other rel­a­tives died.
