The autobiography of Enzo Tayar, a jew born in Florence (Italy), focuses on his experience during the whole period of the anti-Semitic persecution, which began in August 1938 and ended with the liberation of the country by the Allies in 1944-1945. From this story, absolutely true and based on a diary that the author wrote down every day, the reader will get a broad picture of how the small Jewish community of Florence was able to face the harsh consequences of the persecution with courage and fighting spirit. But, above all, the book is a tribute to all those humble people who risked their lives to save others.
