Historical memory can be potent in looking at contemporary horrors. In Rome, the 24th of March is the anniversary of the Fosse Ardeatine (Ardeatine Trenches) atrocity, a Nazi-Fascist reprisal against a partisan attack that meant the murder of 335 Roman civilians. Some were antifascists, some were Jews (some both) and others simply in the wrong place in the wrong time:
And in Argentina, today is the 27th anniversary of the military coup that brought a brutal, genocidal dictatorship, some 30.000 disappeared, countless other political prisoners and torture victims.
