List of Italian concentration camps

Italian concentration camps include camps from the Italian colonial wars in Africa, as well as camps for civil population from areas occupied by Italy during WW II. Memory of both camps were subjected to "historical amnesia". The repression of memory led to historical revisionism[1] in Italy and in 2003 the Italian media published Silvio Berlusconi's statement that Benito Mussolini only "used to send people on vacation".[2][3]
