Leaves Italy to escape Fascism

Moves Country

Erwitt’s family moves to the United States to get away both from fascist regime and Fascist racial laws that exclude all Jews from attending schools. His family leaves just two days before the outbreak of World War II.

Actually we left on September 1 and war was declared on the third. It was the last boat to leave.
