Not difficult to find, I was crying as I read the story of this incident and walked through the calm, serene space. Recently had its 75th anniversary, 40 Cypress trees surrounding the burial site of 40 innocent civilians murdered by Nazis in 1944. Mother and daughter, brothers, a 17-year-old. Sweet, sad, tragic, lovely memorial.

This story and the pictures made me cry , a german officer was killed so the germans decided to get 40 people out of their houses at random and kill them to get their own back. They were mainly young people & some females that were shot against a wall. There are photos of each person inside & it is very sad indeed.

Da die meisten Kommentare in Englisch sind und grösstenteils sehr holperig bis unverständlich übersetzt, mache ich in dieser Sprache weiter: On June 20, 1944 the German MD Dr. Kurt Staudacher and a lieutenant were having a drink in Gubbio as, unexpectedly, shots were fired. Dr. Staudacher died immediately, his companion was seriously wounded. In retaliation, the Germans arrested 100 men and some women and in the early hours of June 22, 1944 forty of them were executed, amongst them also one of the 4 young partisans. The daughter of one of the shot Italians, Guglielmina, and the son of the German doctor, Peter, both born 1943, met for the first time 60 years later, in 2004, at the German War Cemetary in Pomezia near Rome. Their story of reconciliation and forgiveness, is told by Giacomo Marinelli Andreoli in a new book, published by Marsilio Editori Venezia, entiteld NEL SEGNO DEI PADRI, ISBN 978-88-317-2625-2. A worthwile lecture, however at this moment only in Italian language.

The amount of bravery these men and women had is touching. The place is so sad even more so keeping the wall where the Germans shot them to death. Bullet holes still there.. I highly recommend to see this

It almost seems crass and sacrilegious to rate this moving place as an "attraction", but if it means that more people might visit it, so be it. I won't repeat the tragic story behind this mausoleum, as other reviewers have already done so, but it is so important that we never forget this dreadful event and so many others like it. It was a very moving place to visit, and the feelings of sadness and tragedy were enhanced by the photos of the ordinary people who were killed.
