A Jewish family poses with a priest from the parish that hid them a few years later.

From left to right are Nathan Orvieto in the arms of his father, Enrico Orvieto (donor's uncle), Emanuele Pacifici, Guiliano Orvieto, Gualtiero Orvieto, and the priest whose name is unknown. Behind them is Don Gaetano Tantalo and Mario Pacifici (the donor's paternal grandfather).

Don Gaetano Tantalo hid all nine members of the Ovieto family for approximately nine months. He passed away a few months after the end of the war but in 1978 was recognized as Righteous Among the Nations.
