Today marks the 71st anniversary of the execution of Il Duce-Benito Mussolini and his mistress Clara Petacci.
There has always been some mystery in relation to Adolf Hitler’s death. Questions if he really did commit suicide or was it all staged and did he escape to South America, are still being asked by conspiracy theorists.
However, there are absolutely no doubts on the fate of Mussolini and his cohorts. Because they really did a number on them. The partisans ad the villagers really executed them in the most brutal way you can imagine.
Mussolini and his mistress Clara Petacci were stopped by communist partisans Valerio and Bellini and identified by the Political Commissar of the partisans’ 52nd GaribaldiBrigade, Urbano Lazzaro, on 27 April 1945, near the village of Dongo (Lake Como)
