Back by popular demand is Roger Sabbadini's presentation of the compelling true story of his father - an Italian Jewish refugee, Alessandro (Alex) Sabbadini, who escaped Fascist Italy to America on the eve of WWII only to return to fight in Italy with the U.S. 5th Army.

Alex was one of very few Italian-born Jews to fight with the Allies in North Africa and Italy. Roger's presentation will focus on new insights into the role of Italian Gentiles in saving Alex Sabbadini's family from deportation by the Nazis. Books signed by the author will be available for purchase. Roger Sabbadini is Professor Emeritus at San Diego State University and co-founder of SDSU's Institute for International Security and Conflict Resolution.
