This is a must to learn about the beginning of WW 2 and how everything started in the first few days of fighting. The wall in the back is very solemn to look at and think about these people and how they were murdered.

Definitely for me the starting place to take in Gdansk. Small museum, should take no more than an hour, but an important place in this town.

Yes, I know what you're thinking "Why, of all the places in Gdansk I could go, would I visit a post office museum?" The answer is that, for Poles, the post office wasn't just a place where postal workers sorted mail, it was a source...More
