      Great tour guide. She informed us about everything and paused after certain sentences to let the dimension of gruesome facts sink in. It definitely is NOT for children to see yet. Teenagers may be at best. This isn’t a place for young souls. It was very tough on myself, but every adult should see this! Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it!
