We unveiled a memorial to my great uncle, who died there in 1944, supported by senior staff of the museum. A very moving memorial with readings including the last letter he wrote, the day before he died. We also followed in his footsteps from where...More

A visit to the camp is not complete without the museum. Every exhibit (especially the uniform) which one recalls from many movies, tells a story of truth & tragedy. Carefully laid out and selected, they give an respectful insight into the real situation in the...More
