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.

Civico Museo Della Risiera Di San Sabba, Trieste Reviews - Write a Review

  • If you are in to WWII history, it's a must see. One of the only Nazi concentration camps in Italy, it was active until the Nazis moved out and blew up the evidence. There are heart breaking stories associated with the prisoners there, just like all of the camps. Made two of our kids cry. Which isn't hard for those two tender souls.

  • A monument to the people who lived through or suffered the atrocities that occurred in this structure.A reminder of mankind's capabilities!!

  • Historical and exemplary place to visit!

  • Simple as it should be for the respect but still powerful to remember.

  • Sobering. A must see.
