A blog from World War 2 | Un Blog dalla Seconda Guerra Mondiale

January 17, 1945

Today we four Italians stayed home to work again, we do what we can to get by, we’ve each set up our own lair like foxes. We can still consider ourselves fortunate compared to the men in the lagers, I’ve heard horrible things from Agostino and Ciccillo who’ve lived in the infamous lagers for 16 months. They can’t even satiate themselves with unpeeled potatoes, they can’t be at ease while sleeping, they’ve even been whipped. Yesterday they told me that a policeman went into the women’s sleeping quarters while they were in bed, he pulled the covers off of two Italian girls and whipped their bare skin! German civility! Yet some people still call them our comrades! Mentally deranged fools!!
