Title

Cossacks attack Esemon di Sopra

Description

Cossack cavalrymen and foot soldiers attack the village of Esemon di Sopra. Three buildings are in flames, amongst them the village school. A woman is kneeling next to a door with a bundle in her arms and her head thrown back, while a soldier is carrying away a small bundle in his arms. Debris is scattered on the ground.

Label reads “180”, signed by the author, caption reads “9 NOVEMBRE 1944. Carnia la cavalleria cosacca si rovescia su ESEMON di SOPRA UD devastando e saccheggiando, tutto quanto appare sulla loro strada. Da’ un articolo del giornale “Liberta’” di Flora Buccioli, quando per la primo volta dopo quel 12 Ottobre scesi dal paesino scosceso per ritornare; mi fermai a Esemon di Sopra, davanti alla case arse, alla scuola con i muri neri e crollati, i letti, i mobili giacevano ancora in fondo, giu’ contorti. Mi volsi presso il muro corroso della scuola, era rimasto illeso un rosario, e nell’aria fredda dell’inversno una rosa, l’ultima piccola, pallida, parlava fra’ le rovine di un miglior futuro.”
