The concentration camp located in the district of Crveni Krst (Red Cross) is one of the few fully preserved fascist camps in Europe. Even today, it provides authentic testimony to the perils of the Serbian, Romani, and Jewish population, communists, numerous supporters of the liberation...More

This comparably small concentration camp is nothing but authentic. If there are not many people around you can still feel what it must have been like that time. The citations by some of the imprisoned given in some of the rooms make you realize how...More

I could not find the camp on Google maps, but it's easy to reach. Once you reach the boulevard, just keep on going after you reach the bus station and about 10 minutes later yo should see it on your right. There are some monuments...More

If you are interested in history, this place is a must see. There is no guide at the camp, bud there are many information and authentic letters on the walls. You can walk to the camp in 20 minutes from the city center.

No gas chamber here, this was a concentration work camp and a transfer station. However, large number of prisoners were killed here. There are 3 floors of exhibits depicting life in the cocentrating camp. Do not miss the 2nd and 3rd floor.

This place is simply stunning and spooky. All the terrible things nazis did to the poor people of all races. Everybody should visit this place, read letters of victims and see cruel conditions of everyday life they had.

Before going to Serbia, I didn't know there were concentration camps there. Seeing the displays and the photos of the 110 people who escaped was very moving. It was definitely worth the time spent there learning more about that dark part of the country's history....More

It is only in one of the buildings that there is an exhibition. It is a sad place, of course, but interesting to visit while in Nis. Even though some of the information in English could have been better translated, you get the essence of...More

If you are interested in WWII you must visit this place. It is very well kept, with pictures, letters and personal belongings of the people that were inprisoned there. Everything inside is originally from that time.Small but it touches in the heart
