イタリアで唯一のナチ強制収容所がトリエステの外れに有ります‼︎ 私は四年前に1カ月半おり、最初は語学学校の課外授業で参りましたが、その後三回1人で訪れて、イタリア語の上達と共に、その悲しみ、苦しみを感じております! 今回若い日本人のクラスメイトとミラノから来た相棒と2回案内しました! トリエステに来た方は是非訪れて、寄付してあげて下さい! This is the memory of only one camp for Jewish & anti-Nazi in Italy! When you come to Trieste, you should come here!

Despite its proximity to central Trieste, you will not find many other people at San Sabba, which was both a detention center and concentration camp during World War II. The exhibits are unadorned and stark. From this place, many detainees were simply put on the...More

A place everyone should see to remember the cruelty that is inherent to the human race. Although many traces of the true purpose of the facility have been destroyed or loss, the visit is still a haunting and truly touching experience. Having a guide may...More

The Risiera gives a moving account of a darker world war II period in Triëste. The audio guide is advised and also well to do for kids. The experience is intense, though not too grim.

I've never seen before a Nazi death camp and, believe me, the feelings of pain and suffering are tangible starting from the main entrance. The XIX century Risiera (factory to work the rice) was used as army barracks and as prison by the German Army...More

This national monument was a death camp. Prisoners were beaten, killed and burned here during WW2. A hidden part of Italy and Trieste's history which is sidelined even today. It is free but make sure that you get the audio tour at 2 euros it...More

Very impressed by our visit. Got the audio guide for €2 which was well worth it, although quite. The museum at the end was very well layer out and learned a lot inside. Most things translated to English. Definitely recommend this while in Trieste. We...More

The museum has lots of information. The audioguide is very well done and you learn many things. It is not easy to reach but there is a bus from downtown.

This was the most worthwhile activity we did while in Trieste. But first, getting there was an adventure. We took an #8 bus there but had no idea where to get off and after engaging five separate people on the bus, we only had to...More

Please confirm that this was also a refugee camp. I was there in 1964 at the age of 12 with my parents. Refugees from a communist country and we escapade to Italy. Looking at the pictures it brings back memories of the horrible conditions at this camp

I am sorry to know that you stayed here as a child. During the German occupation in World War 2 this was a detention camp for political prisoners and Jews among others. After the liberation and until 1965 it became a refugee... More
