This quiet place......platform 17, was where thousands of Jews were transported to various camps. It was chilling to read the numbers of victims and the trequency of these journeys. Once you get to Grunwald, on the S7 line, you will see signs for Gleis17. Look...More

This really is a moving experience unlike the memorial to the murdered Jews. There is no need for 'artificial' monuments dedicated to the holocaust. There are many all to real ones dotted around Europe and this is one of them. They are all chilling.

Such a peaceful spot today, which witnessed the first steps toward horrors we can only begin to imagine. What strikes you is the progression of dates of transports with their ever-dwindling numbers. Beautifully conceived memorial, well worth your time if you are at all interested...More

The visit at Gleis 17 takes 10 minutes. Maybe 15. But it is something you will never forget. This is unlike any other Holocaust memorial: this is a real place, with its specific data, and particular story - all presented in a simple, concise and...More
