Abstract

After the end of WWII, Dodecanese was set by the British Army. The Italian administration, that collaborated with the Wehrmacht after September 1943, was arrested and deported. Only very few people were allowed to stay and work for the British Military Administration. Among them, the former Podestà of Rhodes, Antonio Macchi, and the sergeant of the Carabinieri Francesco Corletti, who tried to destroy – in collaboration with the Italian government – the most compromising Italian documents, hiding the misdeeds of the past regime. Although they stated, that they had burned the most relevant documents, recent archival discoveries lead us to doubt their words.
