Last Witnesses on show in Rijeka

Posted on September 16, 2019

Hosted as part of the Rijeka 2020, European Capital of Culture programme, the photographic-documentary exhibition Last Witnesses contributes to the preservation of the historical memory of internment in Italian fascist camps for the sixth consecutive year. The guests at the opening will be last living witnesses of the internment in years 1942 and 1943.

The Croatian exhibition opening is announced on September 14, 2019 at the Principij Gallery in Rijeka. The focus of the exhibition is on the survivors, their relatives and friends from Slovenia and the purpose is to try and  breake through a politically induced historic amnesia.

You can view the project, which was also published in a book form in 2016, through its web site: www.guardiansofthespoon.com
