Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I was absolutely horrified about the Italians, the way they took revenge on Mussolini. I can't imagine what we're fighting for, if that's the way the Anti-Fascists behave. I was just reading in the paper that they hung them up in the most lewd, indecent positions, and spat at them, and threw stones. And laughed. The Italian people don't seem to feel any horror at this either. I think it's just too ghastly for words.'
