Testimony of the son Renzo - Milan, 28 July 2014

During the war, my parents Felicita Della Rosa and Angelo Ballabio have hidden in their basement their friends Aldo Debenedetti and Elda (who was not Jewish), who were discriminated and persecuted by the Fascists. The Debenedetti family has been hidden until the Liberation Day, avoiding to be deported to Auschwitz. 

Reported by Renzo, the son of Angelo and Felicita Ballabio. Proposal submitted for Monte Stella in 2014.
