Inter visit Shoah memorial in memory of Arpad Weisz


Nerazzurri defender Stefan de Vrij paid a visit to the Memorial of the Shoah in Milan to coincide with International Holocaust Remembrance Day

MILAN - As is tradition on International Holocaust Remembrance Day Inter have paid a visit to the Shoah Memorial in Milan to honour the memory of Arpad Weisz and the millions of victims of the holocaust.

Stefan de Vrij went to the Memorial to represent the Nerazzurri and the defender brought an Inter shirt as an offering. On the back of the shirt was number 18, which in Hebrew has the same numerical value as the word 'Alive', as well as the name of Arpad Weisz to remember the great Hungarian-born footballer and coach who won the Scudetto as Inter coach in the 1929/30 season.

It's about keeping the memory alive and never forgetting, and Arpad Weisz's story is an important part of the Nerazzurri's history. It was he who launched the career of a young Giuseppe Meazza in Serie A, and his life is a tale of someone who was unable to fully escape the horrific racism of the era.

Weitz was born in Hungary of Jewish ancestry and throughout his life he faced the difficulties posed by the prevailing ideologies of the time. Following the enactment of racial laws in Italy in 1938, he tried to flee the country with his family to as far away as possible. Yet none of them had the chance, as they were deported to Auschwitz and were to never leave again.

It is through his memory that every year Inter keeps the memory alive of the victims of the Nazi concentration and extermination camps, so that history teaches us not to repeat the mistakes of the past and to never forget.
