Event Details

Presented by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and  Centro Primo Levi.

On the occasion of the donation of the Alessandro Sabbadini Family Archive to the David M. Rubenstein National Institute for Holocaust Documentation. The archive contains hundreds of records documenting the experience of Alessandro Sabbadini, a young Jewish law graduate from Rome who fled to the United States in 1939 after racial laws were enacted. Mr. Sabbadini was enlisted in the American army and trained at Camp Ritchie in Maryland. He participated in the Allied landing at Anzio as part of the intelligence unit. 

His sons, Roger and Steven Sabbadini, together with representatives from the Centro Primo Levi and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum will discuss the content of the archive, its relevance, and the importance of family collections. The Museum is in a race against time to rescue and preserve the evidence of the Holocaust and make it accessible to researchers, educators, scholars, families of survivors, and all of those who study this history.
