Default Italy Holocaust survivor Liliana Segre under guard amid death threats

An 89-year-old Holocaust survivor in Italy has been assigned police guards for protection after receiving hundreds of threats on social media.

Liliana Segre, who was sent to the notorious Auschwitz death camp at 13, has been subjected to a barrage of anti-Semitic messages in recent days.

It comes after Ms Segre, an Italian life senator, called for parliament to establish a committee to combat hate.

The motion passed despite a lack of support by Italy's right-wing parties.

Members of the nationalist League party, led by Matteo Salvini, the centre-right Forza Italia and the far-right Brothers of Italy all abstained from the vote in Milan last week.

The motion called for the establishment of an extraordinary commission in Italy to combat all forms of racism, anti-Semitism, incitement to hatred and violence on ethnic and religious grounds.

Ms Segre said after the vote that the abstentions made her feel "like a Martian in the Senate".

"I appealed to the conscience of everyone and thought that a commission against hatred as a principle would be accepted by all," she said at the time, Italy's La Repubblica reported (in Italian).

Since then, she has reported receiving as many as 200 hate messages a day.

Some of the threats have been so serious that the prefect of Milan, Renato Saccone, held a meeting on Wednesday with the committee for security and public order, where it was agreed that Ms Segre needed police protection.

The measures that were approved include Ms Segre being accompanied in public by two paramilitary carabinieri officers.

Meanwhile, the Milan public prosecutor's office said it had opened an investigation into the hate messages targeting the senator and had requested the assistance of Italy's anti-terror police.

Disgraceful, but sadly not unexpected. Nazism is on the rise once again and any politician that voted against the committee should be ashamed.


It's not a surprise to see a 'centre' party vote with extremists and nationalists, Centre is pretty much the right wing with a modicum of self awareness.

Disgraceful. But it's not more disgraceful because it is the far right. It's equally as disgraceful whether it's the far left or the far right.

It's an actual obsession... why is Corbyn even mentioned in a thread in which the topic is the far right in Italy?!
I'm sorry but it IS more disgraceful because us the far right because there is NO EVIDENCE of far left terrorism.
It's just dog whistle tactics, that are as shamefull as they are pathetic in their dishonesty!

And why does the persecution of a Jewish lady by the far right in Italy make you think of Corbyn? ... it makes zero sense there is no comparison whatsoever.

How disgustingly disrespectful that you allude supporing Labour with forgetting about the Holocaust, have you any idea how insulting that is? .. I'm not responding to you in this thread any longer.
I find your comments rude and offensive.

I happened to be listening to her the same time this was posted, so I linked two Jewish women and their current experiences, hardly tenuous kizzy, if you don't like it, then that's too bad

so does that mean that provided no death threats are issued, people can be as antisemitic as they like? Pretty silly argument

Italy seems to be one of the most backwards and racist countries going at the moment, you need only pay 15 minutes attention to the football stories to see that.
