Title

Statement of Alfonsa Torracchi about some Allied servicemen

Description

Alfonsa Torracchi claims she helped, from 10 September 1943 to 20 December 1943, eleven allied prisoners of war in the Striglianella area, near Pistoia. Her son Primo Lucchesi always brought them food in the woods where they hid. On 20 December, they were recaptured in Migliana, near the village of Cantagallo (Prato). On 4 August 1944, German soldiers shot her son and destroyed their house.
