Naples to open Jewish library

http://www.jewishjournal.com/culture/article/naples_to_open_jewish_library

Naples is getting a Jewish library, one of three in all of Italy.

An exhibition called “Judaism and the Shoah in 500 Books from Five Centuries” opened Wednesday in the local Tucci library.

The Italian Jewish portal Moked reported that when the exhibition is over, the 500 books will remain to form a Judaica section of the library.

The books are in various languages, including English, French and Hungarian, in addition to Italian.

The oldest book in the collection dates from 1632, but most of the others deal with the Holocaust period, according to Moked.

Moked reported that this will be the first Jewish library open to the public in southern Italy and only the third in the country, after libraries in Rome and Milan. Naples is home to a small Jewish community.
