National Museum of Contemporary History, Brestanica Unit

National Museum of Contemporary History Brestanica Unit 2014 Izgnanci exhibition opening 03.jpg


The Brestanica Unit of the National Museum of Contemporary History is housed at Rajhenburg Castle in Brestanica, one of the oldest medieval castles in Slovenia. The permanent exhibitions, however, are dedicated to the (mis)usage of the castle premises in the modern times. From 1884 till 1941 it was occupied by the contemplative Trappist Order, which brought progress to the Posavje region. They were expelled by the Nazis who converted the castle into a camp for deporting Slovenes. During the course of World War II around 45,000 Slovenes were sent into exile from here. After World War II the castle continued to function as a prison, but in 1968 it was converted into a museum. Currently it features a re-staged permanent exhibition on the Trappists from Rajhenburg. A new permanent exhibition dedicated to the internment and political prisoners was opened in 2014.
