They contacted a dear friend of Paola’s, who helped them find a place to stay. It was late 1943. Politics in Rome had become more complicated and chaotic. Largely because of military defeats, Benito Mussolini swiftly lost his following. On July 25, 1943, all Italy heard the news that he had resigned, replaced as head of government by Pietro Badoglio. Badoglio immediately began negotiations with the Allies, signaling his country’s refusal to cooperate with the Nazis anymore. For a moment, some Italians felt hope, but none of the Jews that Levi-Montalcini knew allowed themselves that luxury.

Jewish intellectuals were banned from studying or teaching in Italian universities. Intellectuals in general were considered a threat, their activities restricted. ” 40 Responding with what her friends called “dangerous outrage and impetuousness,” 41 Levi-Montalcini spoke even more proudly of her Jewish identity. “The monster of anti-Semitism, all the more menacing for being invisible and yet ever present, had come out of its lair; the ungraspable phantom had become an actual and tangible reality,” she wrote half a century later.

One of Hamburger’s papers, published in an American journal, caused Levi-Montalcini to pursue similar research with chick embryos in a clandestine laboratory set up in her bedroom, since the Nazis forbade Jewish scientists from research. Hamburger eventually invited Levi-Montalcini to join his research team at Washington University, in St. Louis. 37 Rebstock Hall, on the Washington University campus, in St. Louis. It is here that Levi-Montalcini met and worked with Stanley Cohen on their theory of the nerve growth factor (NGF), which eventually earned them the Nobel Prize in 1986.
