The meeting between Liliana Segre, historical memory of the Holocaust, and Matteo Salvini took place in Milan. The TGR of Lombardy reported this. The leader of the League met the senator at the latter's home in the late afternoon: the face-to-face meeting was held in the utmost secrecy. According to the leaked by the maximum reserve that surrounds the whole meeting – for obvious security reasons after the repeated threats that led the Prefect of Milan to assign protection to Liliana Segre – the senator and the political leader met at around 17. Matteo Salvini would have presented himself with his daughter and no other representatives of the institutions would have been present.
Liliana Segre, the first day with the escort
Certainly I did not expect the escort, then being an old woman … I never asked for it and I never thought I would get it: Liliana Segre explained it in an interview with Rainews24. When I heard – he added – of people who had the escort, I always saw them as very important and therefore needed to preserve them. The senator for life also spoke of the reasons that led her to promote the creation of a commission to combat hatred: There is an atmosphere of hatred that I lived in deeds as well as words. To fight it, I expected, had to be applauded by all. I thought there would be a kind of competition to propose what to do against hatred.
Bagnasco: growing controversy
a sad fact that somehow expresses a spirit of growing opposition in the world at large, but also in Europe, a growing quarrel, a prejudicial opposition, sometimes of misunderstanding, sometimes of principles. Thus the Archbishop of Genoa, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, expressed his regret for the escort assigned to Senator Liliana Segre, a Jewish ex-deported to Auschwitz in 1944, due to threats received after the creation of a parliamentary commission to combat hatred. According to Bagnasco, a fact that must displease everyone, everyone must express the right esteem and closeness to the senator.
