  • A touching visit. immersing himself in a piece of history not to forget, to remember and carry on to succeeding generations. Pictures that make your heart cry. I recommend everyone to visit this museum to watch the current panorama of Salento with different eyes and rediscover the cruelty of man in order to prevent in the future.

  • What a nice story this Museum! I encourage everyone to check them out, while on holiday in Salento is well worth a stop. Gathers the testimonies of the community of Jewish refugees, housed in transit camps, organized and managed by Allied forces between 1944 and 1947. It consisted mainly of survivors of the Shoah, which arrived on the coast of Salento, little by little, thanks to the relationship established with the local community, regained dignity and confidence in the future. Photos, documents, testimonies and the beautiful murals fortuitously saved, tell this exchange between disparate people, but that have been acknowledged and respected as human beings. At a time when there was little to Exchange and share. Visit it and invited to visit: is well known abroad and unknown in Italy.

  • Nice idea to dedicate a museum to a little-known episode in recent history: the Jewish exiles housed in Santa Maria al Bagno after World War II. Pity that in March the Museum is always closed: we've seen only from the outside.

  • This place is well represented the permanence and the passage in Salento of people oppressed by non-sense (racism).

  • The Museum of memory is a collection of historical presence in Santa Maria al Bagno of Jewish refugees. Admission is free and there are also many little curiosity about the neretina coastline with historical photos of St. Mary. The visit lasts a few minutes. Dont miss it.
