Conference: Stragi e deportazioni nazifasciste - Per la giustizia e contro l'ambiguità

The research conducted by Insubrica Historica on the region of Ossola and Lake Maggiore has much in common with the war crimes committed during the period of 1943-1945, mostly by German troops - but also by Fascist military units. We have already reported in the previous articles (here and here) the activities of the Waffen-SS Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler against the Jewish population on the shores of Lake Maggiore.

It is a particular chapter in the Italian history - and even in Ossola - that has been long forgotten. Only by the 1990s with the discovery of the Armoire of Shame (in Italian: Armadio della Vergogna) most of the crimes have resurfaced. 

Recently there has been even much discussion about the compensation claims that the Italian government expects from the German side. This conference, which will be organized by a very good friend of Insubrica Historica, will aim to bring some light into this obscure and forgotten aspect of the Second World War in Italy. 

Wright us an email if you happen to be in Rome Thursday 7. March 2019 and would like to attend this conference.
