Title

Statement of Ardelia Susini Cecconi about some Allied servicemen

Description

Ardelia Susini Cecconi claims that she was evacuated to Prunetta, near Pistoia, following an air strike. On 24 September 1943, two English escapees arrived there from a camp near Modena. She and other people gave them food and provided a place of safety. That evening German soldiers started to search for Allied personnel; they entered in Gino Andreotti’s house where one of them started shooting. Splinters hurt Ardelia and other people in there. Ardelia, who was eight months’ pregnant, had a miscarriage. She eventually received a certificate of thankfulness.
