Visited this because my wife and I had driven to Kaunas but until then I did not know it existed. It is another of the twentieth century sites of unimaginable horror. Excellent depiction of the tortured faces of the inmates in paintings in the Museum which really is hard hitting but an excellent reminder of the inhumanity experienced by fellow humans at the hands of both Nazis and Communists. A huge site worth visiting with the prison that held so many people a must see and the killing field of 30000 a poignant reminder of horrors perpetrated by totalitarian regimes in the C20th Jews. Everybody should visit this site. An enormous wooden sculpture that soars from the hillside commemorates all the victims of terror and is breathtaking in its power.
