Libya, December 1938. The governor of Libya, Italo Balbo (1896-1940), asks the Ministry of Italian Africa to take account of Libya’s special conditions before applying the whole body of anti-Jewish laws. Consequently, a part of them is not applied until 9 October 1942, i.e. until the ‘Racial Statute of Jews in Libya’ is published, which extends to that territory also the application of anti-Jewish laws in force in Italy.
