Located just 14 km south of Opatija, there is the Lipa Remembers Memorial Center, a collection of culture and monuments dedicated to the victims of the World War II Nazi massacre. Virtually the entire village was wiped out on April 30, 1944, while the Nazis tried to wipe out the partisans in the area. The village was rebuilt in the decades after the war, and the place now pays homage to the lost lives and centuries of culture that came before that dark day.

Learning history of how Lipa Inhabitants were mercilessly massacered was a dreadful yet an eye-opening experience. Through the various artefacts, I got to learn how the residents dealt with this situation.

Lipa remembers is an amazing place to remember what happened in the holocaust. I looked at many pictures of people who were survivors and died in the tragic holocaust. I saw different buildings, two of which were the gas chamber and a building where the dead were buried.
