Is the exhibition suitable for children?
The contents of the exhibition have been developed by a multidisciplinary team of experts in pedagogy, so that each visitor can get the most out of his or her visit to the exhibition and understand the facts presented in it regardless of his or her prior historical knowledge. In fact, many of our visitors are high school students studying World War II as part of their history curriculum.
Likewise, the exhibition has been developed with a deep respect for the victims, as well as for our visitors, so no depiction of gratuitous explicit violence is included. Likewise, great effort has been made to consider the emotional impact that this history may have on our visitors, so that they can safely explore the story, try to understand it better, and make sense of it for themselves.
