Oro Macht Frei (Gold Will Set You Free)

Each year on January 27, the United Nations remembers the many people of Jewish origin affected by the Holocaust and this day is officially called the “International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust” (Il Giorno della Memoria).

To remember the victims of the Holocaust, on Thursday, January 27, 2022 the ICCC in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Houston will screen the documentary Oro Macht Frei (Gold will set you free).

Oro Macht Frei refers to the extortion the Nazis placed upon the Italian Jewish community to come up with 50 kilos of gold within 36 hours to avoid the deportation of 200 heads of family.

Through the testimonies of Roman Jews, archival footage, family photos and with the participation of renowned historians “Oro Macht Frei ” tells the story of the nine-month Nazi occupation of Rome (September 1943 through June 1944). In addition to individual stories of Jews in hiding and arrest, the film examines the period of Mussolini’s Racial Laws (1938 -1945) and the Catholic Church’s response to the roundup of the Roman Jews.
