Nazi Concentration camp- one of the sadest place I ever visited. The museum punches you in the face by showing what humans are capable of doing to each other. There are prison houses, execution trenches, morgue, gas chambers, crematorium, and many other structures that were used during the world war II. The terrifying portion of the entire museum was the remains of the bombed crematorium in which the prisoners were burned to ashes after they were killed by poison gases and by shooting them from behind. The museum also shows the life of prisoners at the camp, the execution and torturing methods, the chemicals and poisons used, the experiments the camp doctor's did on prisoners bodies etc.., it is all extremely terrifying and nasty. It also explains the history of the camp very well as well. The museum and the memorial are spread around a large area, you will need at least three hours here. And for anyone going to Berlin, I would highly recommend to visit the museum.
