Inmates in the Udine prison being liberated by partisans. Part 2



Inmates in the Udine prison being liberated by partisans. Part 2


Partisans disguised as fascists reveal their identity and attack the guards. “Romano” has concealed a machine gun under his cloak and opens fine on a man in uniform. Illuminated windows are visible in the background. The partisan in the far left of the picture is shown striking a uniformed man with a hammer whilst holding a pistol in his other hand.

Label reads “240”: signed by the author; caption reads (2o) UDINE ... e’ il momento di agire, sotto l’ampio mantello scuro, sbuca improvvisa [sic] un mitra, e con la sua infallibile mira, dal suo unico braccio, sgrana il rosario di morte, abbattendo il maresciallo e i suoi uomini...”.

Caption translates as: “(2) Udine… Time for action. An assault rifle emerged from a wide, dark cloak. Being a sharp-shooter, using his only arm, he moves his fingers through the beads of deadly rosary, killing the marshal and his men…”.
