Risiera di San Sabba Museum

immagine per Risiera di San Sabba Museum

After 8 September 1943, the Nazis used the Risiera di San Sabba – a rice husking factory built in 1913 – as a prison camp; on 4 April 1944 a crematorium was also started up there. In 1965 the Risiera di San Sabba was declared a National Monument. In 1975 the restored factory became a civic museum. Visitors can see the camp, the diaries of two deportees and the copies of five drawings done in the lager by Pordenonese artist Mario Moretti.
