  • It is part of our history :(. That what I have to say, but most likely i want to see it in our history. It is scary it is horrible. But people should visit this place and see what is people able to do other people - to learn from it and NOT to do it anymore (not to do it in any price)!!! Read the story of people which should live there... But also, there you realize what is human body capable withstand, when you trust for better future.
  • The camp is quite intact. Decently preserved with a map provided at the visitors center to guide you on the walking tour. Everything is marked clearly on the map and easy to find. Not a sprawling camp like Auschwitz but well worth the visit.
