Thousands of people demonstrated on Saturday in Milan in a march leading to the Holocaust Memorial of the city. The rally started in via Plinio 20, where ten days before vandals had defaced a “stumbling stone” Holocaust memorial, covering it with black paint.
The stone commemorated Dante Coen who was deported to Auschwitz and killed at Buchenwald on April 4, 1945.
The demonstration was organized to show solidarity to the Coen family.
“I want to thank all the people that participated in the march,” said Ornella Coen, daughter of Dante. “We feel that we are not alone”.
The minister of Justice Andrea Orlando and mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala both attended the event.
