INTER AT THE HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL ON INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ELIMINATION OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION

Boys and girls from the Youth Teams and club employees visited the site

MILAN - On an occasion where people from all over the world come together to fight racial discrimination, Inter once again want to reiterate the club’s commitment to its values. They were established on 9 March 1908 and stay true to this day, both on and off the pitch.

On the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, players and coaches from the Youth Teams, as well as employees at the club, visited the Holocaust Memorial in Milan. This site is located next to Milano Centrale, the train station where many Jewish people in Italy were sent away to concentration camps, specifically to Auschwitz.

In Inter’s own history, there is a very clear example of the injustice and pain brought about by racial discrimination. Arpad Weisz was a Jewish, Hungarian-born player and coach at Inter. He is still today the youngest coach to have won the Scudetto in Italy, achieving this feat in the 1929/30 season. During these years, he also deserves credit for launching Giuseppe Meazza’s first-team career. When racial laws were introduced in Italy in 1938, he tried to escape with his family as far away as he could, but none of them made it. They were sent to Auschwitz and never came out.

Inter’s values have always been based on respect and unity, on being a family. The club constantly reiterates its opposition to any form of discrimination. The connection with this symbolic site in Milan reinforces the desire to eliminate all forms of racism.

The youth players and employees were joined by Inter CEO Alessandro Antonello and the President of the Milan Holocaust Memorial Roberto Jarach. They also witnessed a theatrical story which encouraged further reflection on the themes of racial discrimination, inequality and persecution.
