    Visiting the Red Cross Concentration Camp in Nis, Serbia, was unsettling, confronting and heart-wrenching. The former camp is now a museum, and information provided states: 'As the military base (that was transformed into a concentration camp) was neighbouring the Red Cross Train Station, the camp itself was unofficially named The Red Cross Concentration Camp'. I have put more photos and information about the Camp here

    The name is a little confusing.

    Was it a Red Cross camp, or was that the name of the town?

    Definitely not a International Red Cross operation, they don't usually take hostages. ;)

    I left a comment on the site. We are fortunate to destroy such inhumane treatment.
