Nazi Dokumentations Zentrum – Cologne

If you are interested in history (especially WWII), this is an informative and compelling place to visit. Located in Cologne, this center still has the cells that held those waiting for documentation. There are stories throughout and lots of information. Some of it is written in English, but most is not. Audio guides are available for a small fee. This museum is a real experience and look at what conditions were like and what processing entailed. I really hope you take a moment to check it out. It’s well worth the 4,50€.
