When the camp was liberated, its prisoners were found sick and starving, while many of the dead remained unburied. The memorial and its museum feature photographs and videos of the survivors, as well as written stories. Large mounds mark mass burial sites.

  • Went years ago and I find it hard to put into words what it is like. An important place you should go to. Wish I could explain it better. Very moving. So silent.
  • People in the museum are very friendly and helpful. This place is peaceful, green, quiet...but when you realise where you are and what happened there...you get the chills. It makes you feel humble. It is remarkable how a bit of history can do that to a person.
