We are very interested in the history of the places we visit so we wished to see this sobering memorial. It is located in the lovely town of Pirna, in the former fortress area.
The museum is located in the basement of the building where the original atrocities were carried out. We found the memorial and exhibits very moving giving a detailed and graphic account of the incomprehensible horrors that took place here.
There are photographs and a little biography of some of the victims. Touchingly there is a collection of the personal possessions, including a comb and mouth organ. On some of the paving stones in front of the building a cross has been painted in different colours.
