The Jewish immigrants and refugees from Saint-Martin-Vésubie who escaped from the Germans on September 18, 1943 or later, faced a dilemma: whether to stay in the mountains of the Italian province of Cuneo—where there were thousands of Jews, partisans, deserters, and even bandits, who were attracting a lot of German attention—or make a dangerous journey south where they could be anonymous and await the Allies in Genoa, Florence, or Rome. Three of them—Miriam Löwenwirth, Sigi Hart, and Lya Haberman—decided to go to Florence with the help of a group of Jewish and Catholic rescuers in Italy. This chapter describes their and their families' odyssey.
