We propose some initiatives while staying comfortably at home.
Until February 14 at the Archiginnasio Library “Marietti 1820-2020.

In collaboration with the Studentate Library for the missions and with the patronage of the IBC of the Emilia-Romagna Region.

“Anima Generosa” is an online exhibition visible from 27 January that collects a biographical work on Mario Finzi, a young pianist and magistrate from Bologna, who died in the Auschwitz Birkenau camp in 1945. Generous soul collects the contributions of the students, and their re-elaborations, summarized in an interactive virtual exhibition accessible from PCs, tablets and smartphones.
“Memoriae. Nazi-fascist territories 1943-45” is instead the story of an Italian military internee in Germany, Vittorio Restelli, intertwined with the stories of women who survived the Nazi concentration camps: Elisa Springer, Maria Rudolf, Marta Ascoli, Ada Jerman, Diamantina Vivante Salonichio , Isolina Turrini and Nella Baroncini.
Memoriae was written to keep a promise: don’t forget. Do not forget that the concentration camps, in the highly civilized Europe of the 1940s, engulfed millions of people in general indifference.
