Beautiful museum, very respectful, honoring the 6 millions. I would have like to see a little more of what happened in Western Europe. Most of it is about Poland. Very touched by the forest for the righteous.

The museum is in a spectacular setting and so well presented even though the reason for it is horrendous. You need a half day to take your time and absorb everything
