Now a national monument to commemorate the killing of thousands of people by the Nazis, this was once a rice husking facility constructed in 1898 in San Sabba on the outskirts of Trieste. It was used by the Germans as a temporary prison where all sorts of inhumanities were subjugated on inmates. Moving personal messages are still see engraved on the walls of this building. Along with a prison, this was even a transit camp where a number of horrors took place against the prisoners. While the Risiera doesn't have modern museum technology components, this is a must-see to learn about a chilling aspect of European history and pay homage to the many victims who lost their lives here.

  • The Risiera is a point of reference for anyone interested in how World War II affected the region. That said, politicians and the museum have not recognized the potential and offer a rather small exhibit that lacks proper context. One leaves feeling that Fascism and Nazism killed the political and racial victims - common Italians were not really involved in the entire process it seems!

  • A terrible-beautiful place to learn Be Kind To All Humans, Animals And To The Environment. ... so that you'll be memorized in the history of the world. . .

  • Must visit if you want to learn about what happened when the Nazis ruled for two years in Italy 1933-1935, who and how they murdered. Very authentic concentration camp with a crematorium

  • free entry to the only masacre building preserved within the region. it is a memorial better forgoten of the cruelty that breaths his soul. the museum and historical explanation is impacable and unless you cannot handle human brutality, i surely suggest to bypass the site.

  • Concrete makes it surreal. Brilliant.
