We did not realise that so many areas suffered so much under the Nazis. There seem to be death camps all over this part of Poland. Well worth a visit.

The Rotunda is an absolutely moving memorial to the tragedy in the Zamosc region. The simple displays in the Rotunda combined with the memorials in and surrounding the Rotunda highlight the brutality and horror of the Nazi occupation.

A former fortification for Zamosc turned into an SS interrogation and holding centre for a variety of unfortunates. A really moving place and well worth a visit though few seem to these days. Worth a visit just to remind us of what the Poles suffered...More

It's a place to go and feel the history and pay your condolences for the ones who were fighting for their country. The place is really peaceful, go with a open mind.
