We went to the better-known centre first, and found this place on a map. There were many visitors to the better-known centre, but almost no-one at this centre.
This centre is quite confronting. It makes the point very clearly that the destruction of Hungarian Jews could not have taken place without the active participation of the local politicians, officials and communities. Most holocaust memorial centres in Europe, and there are many, are not so demanding in asking visitors to recognise what happened.
In Auschwitz, for example, the place is presented as a museum and heavily sanitised.
For us, these places are not museums. They tell us what we can do to other people, and warn us not to allow it to happen again.
