The plaque commemorates the people from the Istria Peninsula in Croatia who were oppressed by Nazi, Fascist and Communist regimes.

Istria became part of Yugoslavia after the end of World War Two.  Before that it was part of Italy, and is very much influenced by Italian culture. It was called ” Terra Magica” in Roman times. Istria is much more westernised than the rest of Croatia.
