Such an inspirational place filled with the stories of lost souls and displaced families. We went to see Arek Hersh speak. This is a must just to have the honour of listening to a survivor and his account of history I'd only previously read about. Such a brilliant and inspirational experience This post is written the morning after the manchester... More

This centre was very well laid out and provided excellent information about a very tragic time in recent history. Each area had photos and information concerning the stages of the rise of Hitler and the atrocities that followed. The gardens show memorials to many holocast victims and survivors . Thank you to the family who have devoted themselves to a... More

As many people as possible should try to hear one of the survivors speak. Very moving and poignant detailed accounts of what transpired.

A fabulous but heartbreaking experience. Well worth a visit. Extremely helpful staff - especially when we couldn't find the hidden room!! My children aged 10, 11 & 13 were really interested in it all.

Moving talk by Ruth. Exhibition showed the horror of what went on. Would recommend if want to see a talk by a survivor then you are to go soon , as in the politest terms not many are left due to age. Staff are very polite and knowledgeable. Thoroughly recommend.

I say "uplifting", because what the Smith family have done is quite magnificent. An inspired and selfless act. I came to the Centre as the niece of an Auschwitz survivor (now deceased). Some invaluable memorabilia of my uncle's had recently come into my possession, and I wanted to find a good home for it. I've certainly achieved that aim: the... More

Visited the museum as a group of 10 with family. Very well presented tribute and educational, suitable for all ages. Talk with an Holocaust survivor was very moving and interesting. Staff were very knowledgeable and pleasant.

This was a very small place to visit. The signing for visitor guidance was almost non existent. Three school parties were visiting simultaneously and it was impossible to get round. I had to come away very disappointed.

Spent 6 hours at the centre and museum. Remembrance gardens are beautiful. The Journey exhibition tour was very interesting, informative and very well presented. We then saw a film about one of the survivors of the camps and we were lucky that he was there in person to give a talk and answer questions on his life and what it... More

Promised ourselves that we would visit this one day. So today we decided to go, with my two granddaughters. When we went to purchase our tickets I quickly realised by the look on the woman's face selling the tickets that we may have a problem. She asked how old my youngest granddaughter was, nearly nine I replied, to which she... More
