Pacifico Di Consiglio (Italy‪)‬ HOLOCAUST HiSTORIES

    • History

Italian Jew Pacifico Di Consiglio was the epitome of courage and tenacity during World War 2. In spite of Italian Fascism led by dictator Benito Mussolini and Nazis occupying Italy, Pacifico remained assertive. He was increasingly infuriated by the the discrimination he and other Jews faced. He was angered to the point of provocation, where, as a wanted and hunted Jew, Pacifico became the Hunter himself.

As a defiant and dauntless 17 year old, he trained in boxing and began to protect the Jewish community from Italian and German oppressors. A combination of luck and brilliance allowed him to escape captivity in remarkable fashion on numerous occasions, only to thrust himself back into action. This is a story of bravery and resilience. The story of Pacifico Di Consiglio.
