The liberation brought an end to twenty years of a fascist dictatorship in Italy.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand tell us about the “Liberation of Italy.” In 1945, Nazi army members surrender and leave Northern Italy after being forced out by the Italian resistance movement. Benito Mussolini is later captured and executed, and April 25th is recognized as a public holiday to celebrate the country’s liberation. Plus, the Battle of Bagrevand brings an end to the Armenian rebellion in 775, and “Molecular Structure of Nucleic Acid: A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid” is published in 1953.
