It probably sounds a little crazy but I arrived Madrid at 9AM Sunday, checked into my hotel and visited this exhibit after flying in from California for business. I always try to add a cultural visit and saw that this was being exhibited in Madrid....More

We read mainly the large print wall paragraph exhibit postings in about 45 minutes because of time constraints. Thorough historical timelines back to the 1500’s. Follow the arrows for a sequential documentation. Glad we went!

The Auschwitz exhibition here was amazing! It took me awhile to get the nerve to go see it, as I knew it would be difficult. But I am so glad I took the time to do it today. I wish everyone could see it, especially...More

Quite an emotional exhibition, as you walk through a variety of original artefacts. The exhibition is humble and easily displayed. You can follow the paths and not miss any of the sections. It is spaced out well, so people are able to move around comfortably....More

Very interesting, encompassing many aspects of the nazi regime, its rise, antisemitisme and the final solution, including testimonials of servivors and of sonderkomando members. Of course the heartbreaking silent objects such as shoes eye glasses and other belongings are worth the visit in themselves. Take...More
