The Jewish Quarter

We all know what the Nazis did to the Jews during WW II but I was not aware that it happened in Rome as well.  The plaque in the upper right is a reminder that on October 16,1943, the Nazis brought trucks to this spot in the Jewish Quarter and rounded up thousands for deportation to Auschwitz.
