KZ-Gedenkstatte Mauthausen Reviews
Zeer de moeite waard. Erg indrukwekkend, veel te zien en goede tentoonstelling. Rustige omgeving, veel ruimte voor reflectie en bezinning. more »Very worthwhile. Very impressive, lots to see and good exhibition. Quiet area, lots of space for reflection and contemplation.
Lamentablemente omiten totalmente hacer mención de la división del ejército norteamericano que liberó a los prisioneros more »Unfortunately omit completely mentioning the division of the American Army that freed the prisoners
If you are a lover of history, this is the perfect place to feel a step back in time, as a site I would say that it is very sad to see it live, because it is not the same to read the story to be in that place where there was history, I also think it serves to raise a little awareness of today's society
I was overcome with grief when I wandered through this place in the middle of December 2016. Most of my tour group turned back, since the memorial is so sad even though many of them are written in foreign languages. The chamber itself is smaller than I thought. It was one of the most harrowing experiences, but it is a reminder for all of us not to try and be better so nothing like this will happen again. Highly recommended.
