[Possible/Probable] Decree issued by Italian Government [Italy]
Commentary from other sources:
1) “In the early months of the war, 43 concentration camps were set up in Italy for enemy aliens, and several thousand Jews of foreign nationality as well as about 200 Italian Jews were interned; however, conditions in the camps were, on the whole, bearable. In May 1942 the government decreed that all the Jewish internees would be mobilized into special work legions in place of military service. This order was only partially carried out, and the number of Jews actually mobilized did not exceed 2,000 men.”
