On 14 July 1938, the ‘Manifesto of Racist Scientists’, abbreviated Manifesto of Race, is published in the Giornale d’Italia. Reported the day after by the national press, the manifesto led to a new violent and systematic anti-Jewish campaign. It supported the biological nature of racism as well as the existence of a pure ‘Italian race’. Paragraph 9 states that ‘Jews do not belong to the Italian race’ and that they have never become assimilated.
Il Fascismo e i problemi della razza, Il Giornale d’Italia, 15.7.1938 (issue published the day before).
