Civico Museo Della Risiera Di San Sabba - Review
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
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
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!
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.
A very humbling experience and definitely worth a visit. The entrance is free and for 2€ you can borrow a very informative audio guide, which takes about 40 minutes. In the end you can visit a small museum with additional information.
