HOW DOES A JEW GET OUT OF THE GHETTO?
Living in a typical ghetto the Jews in Ancona, Italy foresee no turbulent future. But they do not image Napoleon Bonaparte. The hero of France invades Italy, occupies this port city and shocks all with his progressive ideas. The soldiers in his citizen army vie for the girls in town. This page turner meshes love story with war story revealing the seismic creation of Europe's Jews as full citizens. All are welcome!.
