A SECTION of Anne Frank’s diary will be read aloud before all Italian league matches this week in response to recent episodes of anti-semitism, the Italian Football Federation announced yesterday.

The readings will take place in the centre circle before all midweek Serie A, B and C matches, and before amateur and youth matches at the weekend.

The federation said it had been agreed with the country’s sports minister and the Union of Italian Jewish Communities, “to condemn recent episodes of anti-semitism and to continue to cultivate memories of the Holocaust.”

The decision comes after Lazio fans left stickers around the Stadio Olimpico of Frank, a German-born Jew who was killed in the nazis’ Bergen-Belsen death camp in the second world war, wearing a Roma shirt after a match on Sunday.
