    We went here with the family and we were all moved by it. It is really a must for those interested in the Jewish history, as it has a lot to offer. When you enter the building you’ll see all the names of all the families that were lost in the Holocaust. That really sets the mood and brings you close to tears. And then you still have to see all the rest. Well worth a visit!
