  • Gives a realistic view of the cruel acts of WWII. Educational and modern museum about the deportation and life of Jewish people.  more »
  • I had expected more. More about what's in the Dossin Barracks itself has played. It went more general about the war. I thought that was a pity

  • Lieu très moderne et musée très très complet (4 étages vastes). Malheureusement, la visite est quand même très monotone si on ne prend pas de guide, alors qu'elle peut durer 3-4h si on veut tout voir.
  • It gave me almost full history of world war II and pictures of survivors....
  • Absolutely worth a visit!! This museum tells the story of the world war in a unique way: everything is told from the perspective of the victims of this tragedy. A beautiful, modern building with a panoramic view on top of the museum. Most of all, we loved the enthusiastic explanation by our guide, Etienne!
  • Very well done.
  • Very pleasant and instructive presentation of a particularly traumatic part of our history. The link with situation today.
