Lia Levi


This Jewish author born in Turin writes novels for youngsters. In this testimony she speaks of her experience as a child, when from one day to the next, her life and the lives of her parents were devastated by the 1938 racial laws. At the time the author was only six years old. Then the deportations began and the need to hide in order to avoid the Nazi and Fascist roundups. Suddenly her parents became fragile and in need of protection. She was still a child, but felt as if she was older than them.
