  • The Holocaust Memorial in Budapest is another reminder of the horrors of Nazism....The Jewish community in Hungary was vibrant, large, and beautiful....so many THOUSANDS extinguished.  more »
  • behind the great synagogue, in the inner courtyard, there is a huge weeping willow "Emanuel Tree" an iron monument to remember the victims of the Holocaust. on every leaf is inscribed with the name of a dead person at the hands of the Nazis.

  • A nice quiet place where there is time for contemplation. You will be wise on Hungary's role in the war, and the war's horrors will be told in a manner SOPs

  • Best holocaust exhibit I have been to. Some very graphic bits, but informative. Staff were friendly and we left feeling like we'd learnt and grown as people.
  • A place you have to visit. Very impressive.
  • I really cannot say if I like it or dislike it. It was good, it was bad.. I'm neutral. It's a must see and know information, but in my opinion, not very well presented.
  • It was an OK museum, very modern and trying to be 'edgy'
  • A unique way to tell the story of the Holocaust, and the specifics of the Hungarian Jewish community. Very brave way to discuss the responsibility of the Hungarian authorities during the war.
