  • Well done memorial. Horrific and moving as you'd expect. Tells the story of what happened and touches on all your senses through a variety of media. Places to sit and reflect. Beautiful outside courtyard to take a break after experiencing. Bring tissues.
  • This is my first holocaust memorial I have been to. It was very interesting and sad at the same time. It is in two different languages, so no trouble for Americans to read. I loved watching the videos to fully grasp the details. The synagogue was gorgeous and make sure to go upstairs to read some scriptures from diaries and look at the artifacts. Prepare to spend at least 2 hours here to see and read all the details.
