On the occasion of the 77th anniversary of the liberation of the former Italian fascist camp Kampor on the island of Rab, we created the above video narrative.

*  Nearly eight decades have passed since the internment of Slovenes, Croats, and Jews in the concentration camp on Rab. The present generations have little or no knowledge about Italy’s role in the Second World War. Historical memory appears not to be sufficiently widespread.With this narrative, we are preserving and perpetuating authentic memory in the absence of those who were interned in Italian Fascist camps for civilians.

** Photographs of witnesses, objects, and other photographs from the Rab Island: Manca Juvan Photographs of the Rab concentration camp, Benito Mussolini, and Janez Lajevec’s linocut: reproductions are kept in the National Museum of Contemporary History.
