  • I want To appreciate the people who works there. We were late, because we lost on our way to there, so we were one minute before closing, and we asked them to let us in, for a quick tour. And they were so kind, and helpful, so we could have our tour. So thank you so much for your kindness. P. S: the place was terrifying, and it will be a memory forever,in a bad way...( I almost cried for a few times) But I think this is what everyone know, it's not new.
  • Very good guided tour. It is worth a visit, because only in this way can one be aware that this must never happen again. After the viewing, you stay pensive all day, because you can't believe that a human could have done that to a fellow human being.
