Execution of member of the Resistance

Large enemy forces attacked the partisan I and II Companies between Lucciano and Le Macee. The partisan Ottavio Rossi was killed at Le Macee and 4 other partisans were wounded. It can be reasonably assumed that the German attack in Lucciano was a consequence of the action that took place on the same day in Memmenano (Poppi), in which an elderly man had been killed and about ten other men captured and then deported.
