  • Visitors should bring up enough time for visiting this very impressive and very poignant Memorial. Especially for the visit to the extensive exhibition.

  • The only visitor there in the snow, free to go whenever you want. Bedrukkend, not understanding, unimaginable. It makes you quiet and that happens especially in the gedenkhal with all names.
