“Beautiful, Lots of History”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Excellent tribute to the tragedy of the Jewish people in Macedonia. The museum is beautiful, and well laid out. It tells the story of how invading bulgarian soldiers loaded the innocent Jewish people up for deportation. Sad history, but one that must be remembered. Excellent location and well presented.

“Interesting and moving”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Well-displayed. It has an instant impact the moment you walk in. Gives the personal stories of people caught up in the holocaust. Very well worth a visit.

“Rude staff”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Very unfriendly staff, was very upset because we brought a small stroller for the baby. Well excuse me, how else are you going to transport a baby through a museum? The whole family is interested in history and Holocaust, and some of the displays were quite nice, but because of the rude behaviour of the personnel we did not spend much time here.

“Instructive museum”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Go there! Most for the pictures and the extensive texts. There are not so many artefacts. After your visit you will know much more of the jews in the Balcans.

“Really great way to better understand what was going on back then”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Warning!! I left this museum feeling really down, and a bit edgy because of the material you see inside. Although, it's an exceptional museum, the amount of information available is astounding. Including audio, video and written material - I walked out a lot more knowledgable on the life of those involved in the holocaust.
We spent a couple of hours in there, reading, watching personal testimonials of survivors, and trying to understand how something (I think it's impossible to ever understand) like that could have taken place.
It's a very well kept building, an amazing memorial, and I would recommend to go in NAND see for yourself.
