A HOUSE IN THE MOUNTAINS: THE WOMEN WHO LIBERATED ITALY FROM FASCISM. A conversation with Caroline Moorehead

LIVE EVENT at University Women’s Club,聽2 Audley Square, London, W1K 1DB

A House in the Mountains is the fourth and last volume in a quartet about resistance in Italy and France, before and during WW2.聽聽The first two volumes A Train in Winter and A Village of Secrets covered the stories of 231 French women who were sent to Auschwitz and the way that villagers on a plateau in the Cevennes set about saving the lives of people hunted down by the Vichy government and the occupying Nazis.聽聽The first Italian book, A Bold and Dangerous Family was about how two brothers and their mother, the Rossellis, opposed Mussolini,聽聽and paid for it dearly. This last book covers the period of the civil war in Italy – September 1943 till liberation in April 1945 – when partisans rose up to fight the fascists and the Germans who had occupied Italy. Among these were large numbers of women, and A House in the Mountains follows the lives of four women in and around Turin and their friends. They were terrifying times.

Caroline Moorhead聽is a historian and biographer; author of lives of Betrand Russell, Heinrich Schliemann, Martha Gellhorn, Mme de la Tour du Pin, and most recently a quartet on resistance up to and during WW2 in Italy and France, of聽which the last is A House in the Mountains. 聽She is now working on a book about the fascist years in Italy, told through the story of Edda, Mussolini鈥檚 eldest and favourite child. 聽She is also working on a book on human rights, Human Cargo, A Journey among Refugees.
She reviews for聽the TLS, Guardian, Wall Street Journal and聽has聽co-produced a series of programmes about human rights for the BBC.

Susan Kikoler聽is a聽Freelance writer, critic, public speaker,聽passionate Italophile and聽Honorary聽Director聽of the British Italian Society.
