Jew Who Led Committee of Liberation in Bologna Sent to Reich, Believed Killed by Nazis

Mario Jacchia, a Jewish lawyer who headed the Committee of National Liberation in Bologna, was abducted and probably killed by Mussolini’s Black Prigades last October, a Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent learned today.

Mario Vistoli, an anti-fascist lawyer who was in hiding here until the city was liberated on Saturday, told the correspondent that Jacchia, who was famous throughout all Italy, vanished last October. In November, the Black Brigade announced he had been captured and taken to Germany, alleging that a list of 180 anti-fascists had been found upon him.
