Front cover of “La Domenica del Corriere” (illustrated Sunday supplement of the Italian daily newspaper “Corriere della Sera”, and one of the most popular Italian magazines between the 1900s and the 1960s). This issue (March 29, 1964) features a love story tragically interrupted by the war and the deportation. “We gave a face and a name to the unknown heroine of Auschwitz”, reads the cover story. The visual design reproduces a “melodrama pattern” that can be also found, for example, in the Yugoslavian poster of Kapò (Gillo Pontecorvo, 1959), one of the first European films to deal with the concentration camps.
