Which country is Istria a part of?
Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. The region was a part of Italy from 1919 to 1947. After the fascist takeover of Italy in 1922, the Italian government began a campaign of forced Italianization. In 1926, use of Slavic languages was banned, and Slavic family names were ordered to be changed to Italian.
