The permanent exhibition of this museum introduces its visitors to the history of the Holocaust. It presents the topic in a considerate manner but with lots of factual information. The exhibition is divided into three floors, each presenting a different chapter from the history of Holocaust (the first floor focuses on the pre-war era, the second floor explores the "Final Solution" and the last floor describes the process of liberation of the victims imprisoned in the Nazi camps).
Many different kinds of media are used (e.g. photos, films, and documents) to help the visitors understand this tragic era of human history.
Apart from the permanent exhibition, there are also temporary exhibitions focusing on more detailed topics connected with the Holocaust. You can also visit the Hall of Remembrance that serves as a memorial.
