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.

We had the opportunity to visit this important and informative memorial. It would be impossible to leave here without being touched by the personal stories, shocking retelling of persecution and complete disregard of humanity. In spite it all, there is an underlying message of hope....More
