During his trip to Israel, visiting the Yad Vashem, Gianfranco Fini (leader of the National Alliance and Deputy Prime Minister in the Berlusconi government) speaks of “fascism as an absolute evil”. Recalling the 6 million Jews, looted of property, deprived of civil rights, persecuted, deported and sent to die in the concentration camps, Fini speaks of “infamous racial laws” and denounces the climate of “indifference, complicity and cowardice” of “many Italians who in 1938 did nothing to react”.
