Italian architectural studio Kuadra has announced the opening of one of their most recent projects, The Memorial for Jewish Deportation in Borgo San Dalmazzo in Italy.  The Memorial commemorates the life of 355 Jewish who had escaped from their countries and found refuge in the Alpine valleys until captured in 1943. The prisoners were later sent to Auschwitz and Mathausen – only 20 survived.

The Memorial consists of a concrete slab raised from the ground where the name of the 20 survivors is written in three-dimensional steel letters. On the ground, 335 plaques commemorate the prisoners that did not returned from the concentration camps.
