A reminder of the worst human acts. Together with the models of the rathouse, reminders of the winners of the second world war acts.

Well I'm not sure that I can say that much about this place... I liked it, I took nice pics but literally it took me 6 mins to finish. I do recommend visiting it, going inside as well. Just don't expect much that's my only...More
