Schools will recall Italian mass exodus from Istria

(ANSA) — Rome, February 3 — Italy will hold a Day of Memory February 10 to recall the murder of thousands of Italians by Yugoslav communist partisans in the ‘foibe’ or crevasses of Istria at the end of World War Two, Education Minister Stefania Giannini said Tuesday.

Schools will learn about “the tragic events that obliged hundreds of thousands of Italians, inhabitants of Istria, Fiume and Dalmatia, to leave their homes, breaking centuries of history and tradition,” Giannini said.

Thousands of Italians were murdered and thrown into crevasses or tossed in alive by Slovene and Croatian partisans in reprisal for Italian occupation of Istria during the Second World War.

That creating long-lasting tensions in relations between Italy and the republics of Croatia and Slovenia which have been accused of dragging their feet over compensation for exiles.
