  • Very nice monument. We visited it on 1.5., so maybe that was the reason of not many people there. You can learn a lot about the trial, but also other things connected to the war crimes. I can recommend for a stop on your route, you can do it in 1 hour.
  • Very interesting to see how the Soviet influence affected the other 12 trials following the obvious and most famous initial trial. A very good museum. I'd like the audio translated to english text. You would be right if you thought the Soviets would want to fry them all, it got political quite quickly.
