Terror in Tuscany: World War II Atrocities will be shown at the Niles Public Library on Wednesday evening, May 2, at 7 p.m. when the award-winning producer Gia Marie Amella presents her latest film.
The 2011 documentary recounts one of the forgotten chapters of World War II. On June 29th, 1944 German SS troops stormed the remote Tuscan village of San Pancrazio brutally murdering 73 people. By the war’s end an estimated 15,000 Italian civilians would become the unwitting targets of the Nazi campaign of violence. Register here.
