A meeting dedicated to the “justice of Islam ,” commemorates Muslims who saved Jews during the Nazi era. The meetings were organized by the Democratic Party in Milan and will be held next Sunday. The intent is to give two important messages. The first is to tell a little-known story about Muslims who saved Jews during the Nazi era. This topic was chosen because even in Milan there is a mounting resurgence of Islamophobia that is very worrying. The second message concerns the importance of standing up to anti-Islam rhetoric and to tackle racism.
