ANED, the national association of former Italian political deportees from Nazi concentration camps, said Monday it will not attend the April 25 march because of the ban on the Jewish Brigade, a past parade participant. The Jewish Brigade was a group of 5,000 Jewish volunteers in the British army who served in Europe during World War II. (Haaretz)
The head of the Jewish community of Rome Riccardo Pacifici said: “Jewish from Rome will not attend the parade. Last year there were insults and offenses to us and some pro-Palestine organizations accused me to be a ‘fascist‘” (Il Messaggero)
In Italy, the Liberation Day is on 25 April and it is the anniversary of the WWII and the end of the fascism.
