  • Important part of humen history we should not forget. A walk to the memorial obslik is recommended.
  • Interesting (and apauling) exhibition and documentation. Remember: Similar attitudes are surfacing everywhere in our time, right now, right here. Se, listen and lean!
  • A very tragic part of History is kept alive to educate and remember about the past. A lot of personal belongings, viedos and written history about the place are displayed. Free entry. Has a cafe. The grave of Anne Frank can be found along with other lives that were lost during that era. A very historic place to vist.
  • I was there in 1987 will never forget. An experience beyond amazing.
  • Unforgettable experience! After a visit one realizes just how so many people suffered the atrocities of war!
