More than 20,000 specimens of great value were collected from more than 100 countries. Visitors can see capsules with earth, blood-stained blood and tears of grief of the blockade of Stalingrad, as well as millions of people killed in the walls of the Auschwitz camp. Here you can find shards of bombs that took the lives of innocent victims, parts of the Berlin Wall, and in each of the exhibits collected the pain and suffering of people who did not really need these brutal and bloody wars.
