ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


Abstract: »During the First World War rape was a recurrent event. Considered crimes against "woman's honour", they were not prosecuted and the men guilty of violence against women were not punished. On the contrary, women who gave birth to the "children of the enemy" were suspected of immorality and frequently forced by their husbands and relatives to abandon the children. The San Filippo Neri, a charitable Institution founded in Portogruaro, in the province of Venice in 1918, offered "war children" temporary shelter, but in many cases the abandonment was definitive and caused deep anguish to the mothers.« (Source: Deportate, esuli, profughe)
