A square in the city of Varese, Italy, now bears the name of an Italian official who saved Jews and anti-fascists in World War II. Varese’s mayor took part in a recent ceremony renaming the square after Calogero Marrone, who used his position as head of the local registry office to provide Jews and anti-fascists with false documents during the German occupation. Marrone was executed.
