Italy’s president joined government and religious leaders in a ceremony marking the anniversary of Italy’s worst World War II Nazi atrocity, the mass execution of 335 men and boys at the Ardeatine Caves south of Rome. The March 24, 1944, massacre took place in reprisal for the partisan slaying of 33 German soldiers. Some 75 of the Ardeatine Caves victims were Jews.
