To­mor­row at 11 a.m. the Ital­ian Em­bassy will hold a cer­e­mony at the memo­rial on the Athens-Sounio road to com­mem­o­rate the more than 4,000 Ital­ian pris­on­ers of war who per­ished on the SS Oria off Cape Sounio on Fe­bru­ary 12, 1944, as they were be­ing shipped to Nazi death camps. The steam­boat went down in a storm and its wreck was dis­cov­ered by a Greek diver in 1999. The cer­e­mony will be at­tended by po­lit­i­cal and mil­i­tary of­fi­cials from both Italy and Greece.
