Why locals love it

This is a place of faith and sharing, full of strong emotions. The museum aims to clarify historical information relating to the Holocaust, while also teaching younger generations about the war. Mostly however, it’s a place to remember what happened and pay tribute to all of the victims.

Why you should visit it

Barely inside, you’ll be overcome by emotions. It’s not a large museum, though there are lots of documents to read and many unknown facts to learn. The sober and sombre décor of the museum encourages you to contemplate and empathise.

Special tip

Take your time to read some documents as there are many interesting things to learn. The wall of names is really impressive.
