I came out of here feeling very sad after hearing and reading about the most horrific acts committed by the Nazis. It is a reminder of how evil humans can be.

This small museum really packs a punch. The gestapo headquarters in Warsaw where extreme torture and brutality took place. People waited in "tramlines" in rooms to be interrogated/tortured, the screams of those being tortured masked by loud music, guards marching outside. Ten cells lined a...More
