Nazis, Italians, Croatians, and Jews in World War II

Forthcoming book opens Chapter on Brutality, Cunning and Redemption

Defying Evil by Benjamin Wood, the forthcoming book on how the Italian Army saved Croatian Jews during the Holocaust, will soon be in book stores. A story unique to the history of World War II, officials at the highest level in Fascist Italy, literally defied their Nazi German allies to protect Jews who were citizens of another country.

Why and how Italians in positions of power risked their careers, reputations, and in some cases, their lives, to protect a persecuted minority in a blood -drenched Croatian landscape is an overlooked story of the great conflict. Considered by some to be an act of redemption, and by all a matter of honor, members of the Italian Ministry, Foreign Ministry, and the Italian Army, conspired to save the lives of Jews confronted with an onslaught of brutality. Defying Evil creates a mosaic of that time, bringing to the reader, a little-seen imagery so- often overlooked.

Author Benjamin Wood, a resident of Las Vegas, Nevada is a graduate of the London School of Economics and has been published in several magazines such as History Magazine, World War II, and Halcyon.
