Title

Hostages being executed as reprisal for the liberation of 70 inmates by partisans

Description

A firing squad opens fire on a group of civilians lined up against the wall of a cemetery. Two officers are featured in the bottom-left corner. Two other men in uniforms are visible in the background, near a built-up area. A copy of the execution notice is pasted on the top right corner.

Label reads “219”; signed by the author; caption reads “Il 7 Febbraio 1945 la brigata Ciapalev aveva liberato i 70 reclusi di via Spalato, a Udine, l’11 Febbraio Reiner [Friedrich Rainer], il commissario del Litorale Adriatico, ordino’ la rappresaglia e alle prime luci dell’alba, un’autocarro scaricava nei pressi del cimitero, 23 ostaggi, essi erano: Pontello Vincenzo – Bernadon Osvaldo – Purmesan Bruno – Maraldo Fortunato – Bernardo Remo – Serena Renzo – Lovisa Francesco – Juri Lino – Zambon Giovanni – Tommaso Adelchi – Manca Gesuino – Dorigo Pietro – Pradolin Luciano – Stabile Renato – Helde Luigi – Chinese Antonio – Bernardel Carlo – Zambon Gino – Lovisa Fernando – Marcello Giovanni – Giordano Attilio. La tragica nuova della piana, volo’ per la montagna, a empire di sdegno e d’esecrazione i combattenti. Sul muro esterno del cimitero, una lapide in cui arde una luce perenne ricorda: Contro questo muro, la sanguinaria ferocia nazi-fascista, sprezzante delle eterne leggi gi giustizia, ostaggi tratti dal carcere all’alba dell’11 Febbraio 1945, per selvaggia rappresaglia spense.”
