Visiting this requires a cab -- the train leaves you off about a mile away from this solemn and holy place -- but it's worth the ride. It's a reminder of the damage of hatred and evil that nations can (and should not) engender.

Small yet very informative, staff is very kind. Recommend to visit for anyone with Jewish background. Lovely exhibition of such a difficult subject.

The Holocaust Museum is located some way off the tourist trail in old Vilnius, but it really is worth making the 10-15-minute detour to visit this small but immensely impressive display. It describes how Lithuania's huge Jewish community was destroyed by the Nazis. It uses...More
