A small Museum, but well stocked with lots of interesting items, some translations in english. Well worth an hour or so visit and not to expensive to enter.

The exhibitions are well laid out to form a walkthrough experience. It holds many interesting pieces bringing the whole period of oppression and resistance to life. The lower section has some harrowing pictures of the brutality of the Nazi occupation during those dark days. There...More
