January 23 at 17,00 the Town Hall of Massraosa will host a meeting with Maria Pia Bernicchia, author of the book "Chi vuol vedere la mamma faccia un passo avanti" (Who wants to see their mother step forward), dedicated to the 20 children killed by the nazis in Bullenhuser Damm School in Hamburg.
On the night of April 20, 1945, 20 Jewish children who had been used in medical experiments by The SS physician Kurt Heissmeyer at Neuengamme, their four adult Jewish caretakers and six Red Army prisoners of war (POWs) were killed in the basement of the school.
The twenty Jewish children were chosen by Josef Mengele from Auschwitz concentration camp and sent to Neuengamme. Mengele allegedly asked the children, "Who wants to go and see their mother?". (source wikipedia)
