An Early American Jewish Drama.
The abduction from his home in Bologna of an Italian-Jewish six-year old boy named Edgardo Mortara and his subsequent forced conversion to Catholicism (with the connivance of Papal authority), appalled the Jewish world. The American Jewish community joined the outrage expressed by world Jewry demanding the return of the child to his parents.
