  • If you are in to WWII history, it's a must see. One of the only Nazi concentration camps in Italy, it was active until the Nazis moved out and blew up the evidence. There are heart breaking stories associated with the prisoners there, just like all of the camps. Made two of our kids cry. Which isn't hard for those two tender souls.
  • Mystic and historic place, nice museum!!
  • A monument to the people who lived through or suffered the atrocities that occurred in this structure.A reminder of mankind's capabilities!!
  • Historical and exemplary place to visit!
  • Simple as it should be for the respect but still powerful to remember.
