“Emotional”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Prepare for a highly moving experience. Little can prepare you for the incredible memorial. Allow at least several hours and prepare to be emotionally drained at the end. As Elie Wiesel says in his book Night, "that evening the soup tasted like corpses".

“Hard to say you enjoyed it!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Really tells you what happened and why. The footage is informative and somehow unbelievable at the same time. Survivors stories could keep you there a couple of hours by itself. In some ways it also help to understand why the jewish people need Israel so much.

“A Real Eye Opener. Life Changing.”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I can't even explain how this touched me. I really was under the impression that I knew all there was to know about the holocaust but I was wrong. There were so many things that made this excursion special. It was very informative with a guided tour and a guest speaker. The display with the different shoes makes you realize how REAL this was. The tour guide told stories that brought tears to your eyes. I would suggest this to anyone in the area.
