Partisan Diary

Ada Gobetti

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents Ada Gobetti's entries in her diary from 10–12 September 1943. She recalls here the day she saw German automobiles pass by while distributing leaflets at the corner of Via Cernaia and Corso Galileo Ferraris, and feeling that the vacation was over. It was not that she was aware of the reality of the situation. On the contrary, she continued to reason with her customary foolish, subconscious optimism that while the German automobiles were carrying some parliamentarians, the proposals would be rejected, and Turin would be protected.
