    one of the most moving and powerful exhibits I have ever seen. The exhibit pieces alone stirs up emotions while the videos and graphic pictures will leave anyone without words

    Some of the footage or photos may disturb you, but it's important to make yourself bear witness (as Eisenhower did) so we as humans can make sure these kind of atrocities don't happen again.

    If you don't already have a ticket for the main exhibit, you will need to get on line EARLY to get a ticket for the same day. I'd recommend arriving at least 45 minutes prior to ticket dispersal.
