Gino Bartali was born in Ponte a Ema, Florence, Italy in July 1914. Celebrated as a champion cyclist … he won the Giro d’Italia – three times (1936, 1937 & 1946) and the Tour de France – twice (1938 & 1948)!
In 1943, when Italy surrendered to the Allied Forces … the German army began occupying parts of the country … rounding up Jews, and sending them to concentration camps.
Soon after … Bartali, (a devout Catholic) was approached by the Cardinal of Florence, to join a secret group offering protection and safe passage to Jews and other endangered people.
His role in this network was that of a bike courier. And, to the casual eye … he looked as though he was simply going for long training rides, when in reality, he was transporting photographs and fake identity documents to and from secret printing presses – hidden in the tube frame of his bicycle!
So, while Bartali’s achievements in his sport were spectacular … his contribution to mankind was so much more significant!
