Ferrara – Antisemitic threats against the teacher Marcella Ravenna on the internet site “Stormfront” don’t stop. The teacher is engaged for years in the fight against racial hatred and her father was deported to Auschwitz.
Her son, who lives in Rome, informed the competent authorities about the threats against his mother. The political representatives reacted also. The representative of the Democratic Party, Alessandro Bratti from Ferrara asked the Interior Ministry to investigate the possibility to block the site “Stormfront” . "This site and the forum publish threats and antisemitic insults against a Jewish teacher in Ferrara who teaches at the university. The Jewish community at Ferrara always had and still has a vital role in our community. We condemn this incident and strongly request that measures should be taken to prevent such phenomena."
