nd moved by the bus.
If you participate in the tour with bus, you can save time of moving.
It is in a faraway place.
I also strongly recommend the guided tour (not free entrance) because it gives an interesting overview of the history.

The explanation of the tour guide was easy to understand, and He was honest, informative and very balanced in the opinions.

Everyone should visit here, this way the Holocaust won't ever be forgotten.
I hope that will never happen again.
Many thanks to all involved.
