"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it!"

So sad.

Unbelievably sad, but interesting at the same time, can’t really comprehend what happened here, it’s such a big place, well worth a visit, though, if you go take warm clothes and good walking shoes especially if you go in winter, it’s so cold and muddy

Our tour guide gave us a sobering and emotional tour of the holocaust site. It is something that when you visit it, you vicariously experience some of the horrors of the people there

It was a one-day tour from the hotel pick-up at 9:45 to the drop-off around 18:00. There was no time for our own, but the tour was so detailed and informative that it was all right for us.
