Fascists Hamper Showing of Film on Nuremberg Trials in Rome Theater

Download PDF for this date

The performance of a documentary film on the Nuremberg trials was temporarily interrupted last night when a group of hoodlums filled the theater with smoke from burning tar. They were believed to be members of the neo-Fascist Italian Social Movement. They escaped before police arrived.

Rome police last night arrested four neo-Fascists, aged 15 to 25, who tried to exhibit near the Coliseum a large map of territorial conquests of Mussolini. The map bore the slogan: “Long Live the Fascist Empire. “
