Title

Inmates in the Udine prison being liberated by partisans. Part 1

Description

Partisans disguised as fascists pretend to escort “Romano” to the yard of the Udine prison. He is wearing a dark cloak and a wide-brimmed hat. A German officer stands in front of the prison gate from which light is seeping out. The prison wall and another building are visible in the background.

Label reads “239”: signed by the author; caption reads “29 FEBBRAIO. UDINE (1o) 15 condannati a morte per reati politici, attendono la loro fine nelle carceri di via Spalato, fra’ di essi vi’ e’ anche “diavolo” un partigiano catturato in quei giorni. Ma i “diavoli rossi” una quadra di GAP comandata da un uomo che rasentava il limite, tra’ la realta’, e la leggenda, Romano era il suo nome di battaglia, i nazisti avevano messo una forte taglia sulla sua testa. E lui travestendo i compagni da guardie repubblicane simula una cattura.. un famigerato maresciallo nazista, appena lo vede esclama: oh! Finalmente Romano sei venuto a trovarci.”
