The Ardeatine Caves Massacre

A war crime that was hidden for 10 years and still unpunished

Italian civilians are arrested in Rome by German troops following the partisan attack on occupying soldiers in Via Rasella a day earlier. (1944)

In the spring of 1944, Nazi troops killed hundreds of Italian civilians in what became known as the Ardeatine Cave Massacre. After the end of World War II, the two governments, in Rome and Bonn, did not take any action to track down the killers, being more interested in political issues and not in justice.
