Not as expansive as the USHM in Washington D.C., but worth the trip to see and understand the depth and depravity of what occurred to European Jewry as well as many others caught up in the uncontrolled hatred of the Nazi regime.

Impressive. All Jung teenagers should go there. Especially when you see historical films from different camps ...... you will have hard feeling.

This is a good memorial to visit. It's valuable and the way the history is presented is excellent and moving. Do not rely on the website for schedule...I would suggest calling and asking. Give yourself a solid 2 hours to go through this memorial.

You can go anytime to visit the museum. To do a guided tour or hear one of the survivors (highly recommended), call them to find out the times but you don't need a reservation.
