This is a must to visit. Let's never forget what happened in the 2nd world war. This place is so educational and provides a well balanced view of this time in history. Great for everyone to see.

This is a must visit for anyone interested in the Holocaust, it is very educational. The staff are very friendly and happy to answer questions. It's very sad, I came away feeling quite moved by this horrible act. The displays are excellent and well presented.
