This former Nazi detention, execution and cremation centre, later served as a refugee camp for those escaping from Yugoslavia. It has been tastefully converted into a museum, preserving the original cells, and providing an exhibition of regional history of the 20th century.
From the exhibition I learned an enormous amount about the the suffering of many of the people of the Adriatic coast, and also about the changing national borders of the 20th Century, the Italian engagement and withdrawal as an Axis power during WW II. I left very moved and grateful to have enjoyed for 57 years of civil liberty in Europe(UK) without being directly impacted by war.
