Campo Concentramento Per Internati Civili Gonars
Gonars was a former POW camp (89) which became an internment camp and was located in the Northeast corner of Italy near the border with Slovenia.
From December 1, 1942 until September 14, 1943 it held 5000 primarily Yugoslav women and children. After the surrender of Italy on September 8, 1943 the camp was emptied of all inhabitants in order to keep them from falling into German hands. The camp was then totally dismantled. Denominations of 1, and 50 centesimi and 1, 2, 5, and 10 lire were issued.
