Unfortunately no, I wasn't. That monument is in the Risiera di San Sabba in Trieste, Italy. This place was converted into a concentration camp, but it was mainly for political prisoners and the Italian Jews were held there only temporary before being sent to Auschwitz. The author of the sculpture took part in a project to build a monument in Auschwitz, but eventually another sculptor was chosen.
I haven't visited Auschwitz either, nor Treblinka, but I visited the Yad Vashem memorial near Jerusalem, in Israel, and it's a very terrible experience.

That's very interesting, I didn't know history of sculpture and history of Italian concentration camp.
I imagine that Yad Vashem is terrible place.
I'm affraid such places. When I see it or read or look at movie about concentration camps, than I cry and can't to calm.

Dama in Nero, I wish you happy, happy, happy New Year!

Few people know about it, indeed. Even here in Italy, but then again, Italians don't really know their history, unfortunately.
I understand how you feel. I couldn't sleep either after Yad Vashem. I found especially upsetting a long dark corridor which is a memorial for the dead children: it is almost completely dark except for countless little leds on the ceiling, which are meant to represent the souls of the children; meanwhile, there is a voice which speaks all of their names over and over again… The only consolation I had was to find a few Belarusian names in the “Alley of the Righteous”, which reassured me that some of my own people did not betray other human beings even if that costed them their lives. And some Italians too: there was a town in which each family took a Jew child in, so that no one would betray the others.

Well, happy new year to you too!

Holocaust is horrible, the people is monstrous.
