Red Cross Concentration Camp

Museum in Niš

One of the best-preserved Nazi camps in Europe, the deceptively named Red Cross held about 30,000 Serbs, Roma, Jews and Partisans during the German occupation of Serbia (1941–45). Harrowing displays tell their stories, and those of the prisoners who attempted to flee in the biggest-ever breakout from a concentration camp. The English-speaking staff are happy to provide translations and explain the exhibits in depth.

The camp is a short walk north of the Niš bus station.
