Petit Futé's opinion on CONCENTRATION CAMP (КОНЦЕНТРАЦИОНИ ЛОГОР)

Plate millesim 2022

One of the few remaining Nazi concentration camps. It bears witness to the suffering of the citizens of Niš and all of southern Serbia during the Second World War. Although at first glance the large building, located not far from the town's railway station, looks like an old factory or warehouse of some kind, it is not. Everything here has remained unchanged, as if time had stood still in 1944: the grey, rectangular buildings where civilians were crammed together, the watchtowers and sentry boxes, the intact barbed wire... During the war, more than 30,000 people passed through the camp, 10,000 of whom were shot on Bubanj Hill. At the beginning, the camp was intended to lock up, interrogate and torture the enemies of the regime: Serbian communists, hostages, gypsies and Jews. On 12 February 1942, a revolt broke out and more than a hundred prisoners managed to escape. The repression was ferocious: the remaining forty prisoners were butchered with a bestiality rarely seen until then, and then this camp called the Red Cross became the death camp. An outstanding visit which, as well as the Skulls Tower and the Mediana, deserves to be done during a visit in Niš.

On the hill of Bubanj, a monumental sculpture represents three huge closed fists. It honours the memory of the 15 000 prisoners shot by the Nazis on this hill, after having known the jails of the Red Cross.

Lieu chargé d'histoire et très intéressant. Il n'y avait pas de visiteurs autre que nous, et nous avons pu profiter du lieu calmement. C'était impressionnant. Bien que le site soit moins grandiose que d'autres en Europe, c'est une visite à faire !
