“Very Sad But a Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

It is very necessary to come and see this exhibition just to understand the terrible vile evil things that happened. I volunteer for a jewish organisation in a day centre where people come for the day and are entertained and have activities a few of them have stories to tell but unfortunately will not share the terrible things they saw but one lady was on the kinda transport and freely spoke about it her mother was taken by the Nazis but her father was not jewish so was left he put his two young daughters on the kinda transport but she never saw him again as he was shot in the street a neighbour told her, she has now passed on a wonderful lady. I find it possible to visit all these places because it incomprehenable to imagine what happened, the pictures in the museum tell horrific stories it's hard to stop the tears, so everyone should visit when in Vilnius to pay their respects and never let this ever happen again.

“Excellent Holocaust Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

As I had read, this museum was a bit hard to find, but worth the effort. You cannot see it from the main street. The small street that it is on looks more like an alley. If you go up that little street it is on the right side and is set back a bit. Just before the street there is a brown Holocaust sign that points to the street.

My husband and I both thought that this museum was excellent. Most people know about the Holocaust in the Baltics, Ukraine, and surrounding countries, but they don't really know how it was done. It gives a big insight into the Einsatzgruppen.

“A Moving Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The museum commemorates the victimisation and extermination of Jews in Lithuania and contain many photographs, letters, documents, edicts and proclamations relating to this. Not so easy to find on some maps.

“Not To Be Missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This is a wonderful museum which will educate and shock you. There is countless material pertaining to a very dark time of Lithuania's history. Clearly, much thought and effort have gone into assembling this collection. For any one interested in history, this museum is a MUST.
