  • A very small museum packed full of reading material which tells the terrible story of the fate of the Vilnius Jews at the hands of both the Nazis and the local collaborators. Shocking stuff that never...  more »
  • This is one of the exhibition venues of the Vilna Gaon Jewish State Museum, an old wooden house, survivor of many that the last century lived in the city and used during WWII as a temporary refuge for the persecuted, as they may bring up in the attic: here was indeed rebuilt a transit and a short documentary recalls the implementation of roundups. Recommend the visit to get an idea of what the Holocaust in Lithuania, thanks to the rich documentary evidence that here are conserved and which are not easily available otherwise. Some photographs of the massacre of Paneriai are staggering. Combined ticket with House of tolerance 5 euros.

  • You may well understand that a museum like that can be very attractive. But at the end of the visit they bring you in a dimly lit room and cold where you are reviving so absolutely unforgettable anguish of people hidden by the knocking on the door, crying babies, the screams of the soldiers outside. Davveroi awesome.
