This memorial to 50000 Jews deported to various concentration camps is very moving. It is the site of a freight yard used for deportations. The original rails remain and the platforms have been transformed with plates highlighting dates, numbers and destination of those deported. It...More

A must visit for history buff. Came a few times and each time we come, the crowd was just nice. Able to sit by the tracks in silence.
