When we went to visit this site we had it all to ourselves. It was powerful in its simplicity -to see the walls lined with ledger pages recording the names of thousands of people sent to concentration camps was an emotional experience. There aren't any graphic pictures which made this a good site to bring my pre-teen son to.

Just as humanity should never forget (or deny) the horror perpetrated by the Nazi regime from 1939 to 1945, the visitor to Radegast Station will never forget the experience. Lodz (pronounced “Woodge”) is Poland’s third largest city and 10 years ago began to mark the history of its Jewish ghetto. In 2004 the Park of Survival was created, where some... More

The train station seems surreal in it's ability to evoke emotions of anger and sadness 65 years later for the complete lack of humanity. One wonders how anyone could have endured such heartache and death. Walking on the original cobblestones was interesting. But by far, the most disturbing piece of history I have ever seen in a "museum" were the... More

So simple yet so sad. To stand in the actual cattle trucks used to take people to the camps is one of the most emotional things I have ever done. A very dignified memorial.

I was traveling with a group of teachers studying the holocaust and following in the footsteps of some local survivors in the US. This memorial is extremely powerful and well done. It was very quiet and peaceful and I thought an excellent tribute to the lives that were lost.

A truly haunting place, particularly the cattle wagons. For those of us that only know of WW2 and the Holocaust via history books it is a must see. The small museum on the platform is also worth visiting and has some confronting but important images
