This museum, monument and site is not to be missed. Although way off the beaten path, the stark devastation is impactful as is the wall of first names at the end of the long corridor / tunnel leading to it. Take the time to walk...More

I don't think most tourists go here but it was just redone and must be seen. You will not see a camp but the memorial is unlike anything you will ever see. Please go. It will break your heart
