Official presentation in the late afternoon of Friday 12 October, at the Mellerio chapel in Domodossola, of the interesting book by the Ticinese historian Raphael Rues “SS-Polizei Ossola- Lake Maggiore 1943-45. Rastrellamenti e Crimini di Guerra” printed by Edizioni Insubrica Historica.
The event was moderated by Professor Pier Antonio Ragozza, who in his introduction highlighted the responsibility of the SS-Police in the various war crimes committed in the Ossola region. Many of the officers also managed to remain after the war unpunished, and easily resumed their career in the German Federal police. The presentation also explained the various archival sources consulted for this specific research.
