“Humbling experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

The memorial brought me to verge of tears as I read the history of the events and the photographs etched on the granite tombstones. It is hard to believe the cruelty of the perpetrators, and the apathy of the world that witnessed the destruction and desecration of human life. Perhaps if more people experience the memorial, there may be less chance of it recurring, and holocaust deniers may have a harder time in convincing others that the holocaust did not happen

“Visited here while on tour bus!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

A must see. This is a very peaceful place. The memorial is made of stone imported from Jerusalem. Don't want to tell everything, but you really should take time to check out this site.
Volunteers were very nice and knowledgeable.
Thanks Rivka.
