Beginning in the 16th century, the Jewish community of Rhodes was part of the Ottoman Empire for four centuries. As a result the conquest of the Dodecanese, the island was incorporated into the Italian colonial empire in 1912. Thus the experience of the Jews of Rhodes differed from those of other communities in the Judeo-Spanish Levant which were incorporated into one of the successor states of the Ottoman Empire. In 1943 the German Wehrmacht occupied the island. In July 1944 the unique history of the Jewish community on Rhodes ended with its deportation to Auschwitz.
