Title

Prisoners of the San Sabba Concentration Camp during a bombing

Description

In a bare room, a man is chained to the wall surrounded by five other prisoners. The man at the back has a Star of David badge sewn onto his yellow shirt and is holding his hands in the air, whilst the other men appear to be shouting.

Label reads “142”; signed by the author; caption reads “(2) TRIESTE, RISIERA di S. SABBA, 10 GIUGNO 1944. Durante un violento bombardamento aereo su Trieste, dei detenuti fuggirono dalle celle, al pianterreno della Risiera dove erano stipate anche 7 persone per cella. A malapena vi avrebbero potuto stare solo 4, con un piccolo foro nel soffitto, e 2 tavolacci per sdraiarsi, la rappresaglia costò la vita a 20 persone. Così fù per il triestino P. R. assente ingiustificato dall O. T. lavoro obbligatorio, finito a colpi di mazza il 7 Aprile 1945. Della medaglia d’Oro friulana Cecilia Deganutti, le uccisioni venivano eseguite mediante gassazione, o colpi di mazza, o sgozzamento per mano di Wirth [Christian Wirth], un uomo feroce dalla frusta di cuoio, sempre in mano a mò di talsimano. FINE.”
