Life In Campagna

There were two camps in Campagna. One was located in a former barracks, Concessione, and the other, named the Camp of San Bartolomeo, was located in a former convent attached to the active Church of San Bartolomeo. The camps were for men only. There were approximately 250 to 350 Jews located in Campagna at a time. The Jews were free to mingle with the local population during the day. In addition, they were able to read, participate in musical groups, visit with family members and practice their religion in a synagogue that was built in the former convent. While the Jews did have curfew to adhere to, they had the same rations as the local population.
