Stumbling stones - Italy’s culture of remembrance

Wandering through the streets of an Italian city, a contemporary visitor may occasionally come upon small golden tiles, set into the pavement and each inscribed with a name and several dates and details (‘arrested on’ and ‘deported from’) explaining the fate of someone who once lived in the given location. (Often the following words include ‘assassinated’ or ‘killed in Auschwitz’). (Photo: Stumbling stones in Turin) - Source: guidatorino.com

ARPAD WEISZ: THE FOOTBALL ICON AND HOLOCAUST VICTIM REMEMBERED IN ITALY

Yet in January this year, Alessandria hosted a ceremony which honoured the life of an adopted son who had taken this very journey, football player and manager Arpad Weisz.
