Wasn't expecting to come away so haunted but this museum really tells it like it is. The area on the holocaust and the clearing of Jews from communities in Poland and Russia was graphic and powerful and demonstrated what war is really like.
As I walked through I realized why my grandfathers would never talk about the War. One served in Europe, the other the Pacific.
Very good backgrounder/Refresher on WW2/Normandy for prior to a tour if you've got one scheduled. But mind the little ones because you have to walk through areas with massive photos of death and dismemberment once you start.
Sombering and real. Glad I went, and now I understand a little more why my grandfathers never wanted to talk about the war.
