April 29, 1945
Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (second left) and his companion’s bodies hung on display by the communists at an Esso gas station in Milan. His mistress, Clara Petacci (third left) refused to leave him throughout his capture despite a rumour that she was offered a safe departure. She was shot by his side. The last photo of Il Duce before he is publicly displayed shows him lying dead, with his head on Clara’s chest.
