70 years after the nazi massacre
May 04, 2014; one of the most beautiful spring days I have ever seen in Val Pogallo: a narrow, deep valley, with steep walls and thick vegetation.
During World War II Pogallo was the refuge of many brave Partisans.
On June 18, 1944, Pogallo was the scene of the massacre of 18 Partisans, war prisoners slaughtered by the machine guns of the nazi.
The plate on a stone wall reads: “Of many, we do not even know the name. But we know what pushed them to fight on these mountains. And we know that -one early summer morning with the tall hay perfuming the air- their dreams were shattered, and their ideals were picked up by others.”
6 pictures, in memory and in honor of 18 young men who perished for high ideals, and to free us all.
6 pictures in honor of all those who still strive today, anywhere, with whatever means, against any sorts of injustice.
