National day of memory and sacrifice of the Alpine

The Italian Parliament approves the law for the “National Day of Remembrance and Sacrifice of the Alpini” in memory of the “heroism demonstrated in the battle of Nikolajewka (26th January 1943) during the Second World War”. The chosen date arouses several controversies by historians who recall the crimes committed by the Italians on the Russian-Ukrainian border, alongside the troops of the Wehrmacht and the Einsatzgruppen, the special operations units of the SD, the intelligence service of the SS.
