The Risiera di San Sabba is a former rice husking facility in the northeastern Italian city of Trieste, which was used as a Nazi concentration camp during World War II. It is estimated that around 5,000 people, mostly political prisoners, Jews, and Slovenes, were imprisoned and killed at the camp between 1943 and 1945. The camp was liberated by the Allied forces in April 1945, and it is now a museum and memorial site dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and fascist repression. The Risiera di San Sabba stands as a stark reminder of the atrocities committed during the war and serves as a testament to the importance of remembering and honoring the victims.
