This is about a place, when a mass escape, later screened under the same title as this review, has happened. The place is not easy to find - you got to follow the road south from Żagań, and after about 1 km you'll see the signs for the museum. The main feature is after war building, since 2012 joined by the reconstruction (made by English and US pilots) of one of prisons wooden huts. There's also very stirring monument there, and the latest thing - a copy of the "Harry" tunnel, where you can check the conditions they had during the escape in march 1944. The museum groups all the basic knowledge you need about the war times, but then you got to use your sense of direction to find the genuine prison remnants being repossessed by the nature fast. There's an excellent map of the former prison on sale in the museum. The track of the "Harry" tunnel can be found just north from the museum, in thick forest. monuments are placed at both ends of the tunnel and between them there's a line of concrete blocks with names of the escaped prisoners. There's also many traces of all sorts of prison buildings hidden in that forest. Slightly closer to the Żagań there's set of two war time cemeteries (English and Russian).
