During a state visit to Italy this week, German President Johannes Rau will pay homage to hundreds of Italian victims of the Nazis. Accompanied by Italian President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi on Wednesday, Rau will visit the village of Marzabotto, near Bologna, where at the end of September 1944 nearly 2,000 Italian civilians, including at least 189 children, were massacred by Nazi soldiers for allegedly harboring anti-fascist partisans.
