Italian Commission for the recovery of Jewish bibliographic heritage

kathleen writes "A 17th-century book was returned to Rome's Jewish community on Monday, one of thousands Jewish volumes seized by the Nazis in 1943. The pocket-size religious book, published in Amsterdam in 1680, belonged to the library of the Rabbinic College of Rome, which was looted during the Second World War.

The Italian Commission for the recovery of Jewish bibliographic heritage has been investigating the status of the seized volumes since 2002..The Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg took the volumes to Germany."
