We visited this out of the way museum recently. It is located in a beautiful, parklike venue. The museum itself is inside a former mansion. It was laid out very well, the information flowed nicely and it was very moving.

More than a Holocaust Museum. Survivors are often present to guide and mix with visitors. Center provides and promotes tolerance through a well structured educational program. After visiting the class rooms one is motivated to make a donation to support this program.
