Title

Cossack occupation of the Carnia region

Description

On a clear day in the mountains, armed Cossacks are passing through a valley, using camels and a horse and cart to transport goods. In the foreground, one figure is pointing to the right.

Label reads “158”; signed by the author; caption reads “CARNIA OTTOBRE 1944. Cessata l’azione bellica tutti i paesi furono invasi, assistemmo per 3 settimane ad un vero insediamento migratorio, via via che l’enorme marea umana si rovesciava sulla regione. L’occupazione russa fu terribilmente dura, massiccia pesante prepotente. Dopo gli attacchi aerei su Tolmezzo, i cosacchi occuparono il sud della Carnia, i caucasici il nord vi facevano parte cosacchi del Don, del Kuban, circassi e grusini georgiani con al seguito le famiglie, a Verzegnis pur una ventina di cammelli.”
