  • A must visit in Trieste, if only to pay your respects to our shared past.
  • Must see if you're visiting Trieste.
  • BERNARD VELNIC WAS IN THE SAN SABO CAMP IN 1958 AS AREFUGI AND MAGRITED TO AUSTRALIA IN 1959
  • Very sobering visit to this historical location. For those that don't speak much Italian, it's worthwhile to read the English hand out on their website. We took it with us and it helped contextualize the things we were seeing. There is limited parking in the area as is true in most of Italy. Parking in the Familia parking lot, going down the stairs and around the corner to the left will ensure you arrive in the right location. Our GPS didn't do a great job finding the location which is why we parked and asked.
  • very emotional... they often have interesting exhibitions.
