2011-03-25

Today one can still see the graves of the Italians that were killed. Many of them were ordinary citizens or prisoners of war, who were rounded up by Nazi forces for execution.

Among the 335 killed, 75 were Jews, which has made the Fosse Ardeatine a site for Christian and Jewish pilgrims alike.

It has become a national monument that attracts daily visitors and reminds them of the role played by the Italian resistance movement in WWII.
