Foibe massacres

Local nameFoiba di Basovizza
LocationTrieste, Italy

The "foibe massacres," or simply "the foibe," literally refers to mass killings by which the corpses were thrown into foibas, perpetrated mainly by Yugoslav Partisans, mainly in Venezia Giulia, Istria and Dalmatia, against the local Italian population, during and after World War II.

In a wider or symbolic sense it refers, for some authors, to all disappearances or killings of Italian people in the territories occupied by Yugoslav forces, thus excluding possible 'foibe' killings by other parties or forces.
