Lizzano in Belvedere
Two partisans shot
On 12 August 1944, during the “Belvedere” search and round-up operation, two partisans were found and captured by the German soldiers on the bed of the River Silla (they were exhausted after their long marches through the mountains). After interrogating them and condemning them to death, the Germans paraded them through the town to the pinewood below the church. After making them dig their own grave, they shot them dead.
