March 1939. The Directorate General for demography and race reviews the case of Sister Maria Consolata of ‘Jewish race’. The nun is a teacher at the Kindergarten of the ‘Filippi’ Institute in Vercelli and has been suspended from teaching. Born with the name of Cesira Calabresi (1887-1977), after 30 years of service at that Institute she was successively transferred to the orphanage of the same city as an ‘anonymous’ assistant. She would remain there for 36 years.
