Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte visited the Shoah Memorial in Milan on Thursday escorted by Auschwitz survivor and senator for life Liliana Segre.

“In memory of this visit of mine to cultivate Remembrance, to break through the wall of indifference, and to keep alive the memory of what was and must no longer be again,” Conte wrote in the guest book.

The Memorial stands in the warehouses of Milan’s Central Railway Station, where Nazi and fascist soldiers loaded the trains to the death camps concealed from view.

Segre, 89, was deported to Auschwitz from there in 1944 at the age of 13.
