very moving and sobering location. there are no info plaques or free guides available, so i'd highly reccomend visiting the museum part first before walking around the buildings in order to learn the history of the place.

It should be visited by everyone. Because the human kind didnot make only monuments and palaces.... Man is really the most scary creature on earth. About the tortures and victims of ww2. There is no ticket needed .
