Una Storia Segreta (the words in Italian mean both "a secret story" and "a secret history") was developed by the American Italian Historical Association's Western Regional Chapter. It is dedicated to those who endured the confusions and losses of World War II largely in silence. By giving them voice now, we hope that others will be encouraged to fill out this story further -- one we believe is not only worth telling, but crucial to understanding what has shaped us all.
