“We have to remember”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

It is a memorial that was built in honour to those who died during the world war 2nd. In those vilages that were burnt whole... We should at least once in life visit such places to remember... and to thank destiny that you have never known such sorrow.

“Historical place. Worth to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

I have visited this Memorial...it worth to visit...
It will be interesting for people who know and respect history. This memorial actually gives this feeling...kinda brings you closer, gives you more understanding of what people could feel and went through during world war II....
The memorial is is absolutely free but bear in mind, there are no cafe's or other places to buy food so don't go there hungry ;). And if you expect any amusements, etc, it is not the right thing for you. The memorial are made in remembrance of the victims of second world war...
On one of my photos message of victims to us (in Russian). I can't translate it exactly but it is really deep and touching, its kinda asking us to keep peace on a planet....
