The deportees came from all walks of life, including Nerik Mizzi, one of the leaders of the Nationalist Party, Sir Arturo Mercieca (who had been forced to resign his post as chief justice) Herbert Ganado, editor of Lehen is-Sewwa, Chev Vincenzo Bugeja, dockyard workers including the brother of Dun Gorg Preca, and even a 70-year-old man. They had originally been interned in May 1940, shortly before Italy entered the war, because it was claimed that they posed a threat to public safety and national security. They were never told how that was the case.

He recalled that the Maltese were interned without due process. They were first taken to Fort Salvatore in the Cottonera Lines, then the Corradino prisons, where they protested that they were not criminals, and finally St Agatha convent in Rabat. [source]


@JANKER: Yeah, loads of people think we speak Italian too. :P

:lol:
Italians do ... :lol:
Others think that it used to be part of Italy... But it did not either. In the middle ages until the islands were offered to the Knights of St.Joh,Jerusalem & Rhodes (1530)
Malta formed part of the Reign of the two Sicilies (Naples and Sicily)
Under the King of Spain...
Carl V offered Malta and Tripoli against a yearly small fee and something in in kind.

We'd better not start the deportees issue cause I might commit a crime in the process:evil:
The British and their ass kisses here committed a grave injustice against those poor men.
The first place you mentioned was right in the middle of it all... In the port area where the majority of the attacks were being carried out.
@ Fcbayern .What? A relative of yours was interned ?
You know what ? My grandpa (who I ve never saw cause he died a month before my birth) was a die hard Nationalist and Pro Italian.
He owned a shop in Valletta and his family used to warn him not to go because of the obvious reasons.
He used to tell them that unless it is an Italian bomb it does not matter.

Benito formed the party in March 1919 (doubt that he had supporters here in two months - there were no forums back than:-))
He came into power in 1921.

Yes. I actually only found out a few years ago. I don't remember him, but I do vaguely remember his wife. Funnily he also owned a shop in Valletta which was quite well known... the Emco newsagent near the ruins of the Royal Theatre. I'm not sure whether it's still there since they renovated the place. I don't really pay attention whenever I go to Valletta (which is rare).

That journalist who has your surname is a relative of yours ?
So he was your great grandfather ? Wow you should seek more about his story .

Yes, he is my father's cousin, but I do not know him well. In 2010 he used to report live from the World Cup village in Manoel Island and I went to speak to him after the semi-final vs Spain and he didn't recognise me at first. :lol: Funnily he is good friend's with my mother's sister and has been since before my parents married... Malta is too small. He has a bad taste in football though - Birkirkara and Inter. :P

Actually we suspect that there is only one family with our surname in the world and we are all related. My father and some guys in Italy were trying to trace everyone and form a family tree a few years ago thanks to the power of the internet, but there's only so far you can get. It's kind of been put to the side now but my father tries to maintain contact with everyone. There are a bunch of relatives in Naples whom we had no idea about, but they managed to discover the relation between us. So far we do not know of anyone whom we have not managed to identify in the family structure.

Personally my biggest interest in confirming whether we are all related is that once I was randomly searching online and I found that there was a 5th century governor of Mecca who shares our name, whose descendants were involved in the conflicts at the beginning of Islam. It would be interesting to know whether his bloodline somehow made its way to Malta, but I doubt it will ever be possible to trace 1500 years of family history. :P

After more than a decade in space, Pioneer 10, the world’s first outer-planetary probe, leaves the solar system. The next day, it radioed back its first scientific data on interstellar space.

On March 2, 1972, the NASA spacecraft was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on a mission to Jupiter, the solar system’s largest planet. In December 1973, after successfully negotiating the asteroid belt and a distance of 620 million miles, Pioneer 10 reached Jupiter and sent back to Earth the first close-up images of the spectacular gas giant. On June 13, 1983, the NASA spacecraft left the solar system. NASA officially ended the Pioneer 10 project on March 31, 1997, with the spacecraft having traveled a distance of some six billion miles.

Headed in the direction of the Taurus constellation, Pioneer 10 will pass within three light years of another star–Ross 246–in the year 34,600 A.D. Bolted to the probe’s exterior wall is a gold-anodized plaque, 6 by 9 inches in area, that displays a drawing of a human man and woman, a star map marked with the location of the sun, and another map showing the flight path of Pioneer 10. The plaque, intended for intelligent life forms elsewhere in the galaxy, was designed by astronomer Carl Sagan.
