    This war should never be forgotten. It was the most epic struggle in the history of mankind. The Nazis were defeated by the Red Army, at a terrible cost.

    I can’t see photos made after 17 September 1939, where Russian-Bolshewiks and German-Nazis stands happy and smiles together. Also no photos and artefacts from Russian death camps, where number of victims, included Ukrainians, was much higher than in germnan camps.

      …”I can’t see photos made after 17 September 1939…”. Perhaps because you can see photos after the Nazis broke all treaties and attacked and killed most of their “inferior” friends and allies, including your “Russians”.

      …”Also no photos and artefacts from Russian death camps, where number of victims, included Ukrainians, was much higher….”. Really? I suppose you can’t back up that. Fantasy tales always sound pretty frightening.

      Perhaps these pics remind us that Nazism was the only totalitarian regime salughtering millions, based on Racism only.

    I have been to this museum. It was good to learn more about the eastern European front as most of what i have seen has been the western front. We must remember so it never happens again.
