  • Great visit, very instructive and very sad too. I think the opening of the guided tour was very long, the guide could have been more brief and should not force so much the comparison of Nazism with forms of discrimination, saying that this could also end in genocide.

  • Amazing place, I felt in history. I was well shocked by the facts reported by the survivors and also by the photos exposed.
