The remains of Buchenwald Memorial, a Nazi concentration camp, serve as a museum and memorial to its victims. Much of the site was demolished, but you can still see the main gate, crematorium, hospital block, and two guard towers. Walk around the site to gain a new understanding of the horrors of Hitler's Germany. The clock on the entrance gate, set to a quarter past three, refers to the time American troops arrived at the camp on April 11, 1945. The museum outlines the history of the camp and displays many relics, such as letters, clothing, and photos. Check for the scheduled guided tours.
