    Although not open just yet, the Human Rights museum is expected to open in 2014, far behind schedule - there seems to be quite the dramatic conversation around this museum particularly. The building itself was quite an eyesore for the years of constructing it, the glass panels have eased somewhat, but personally I'm glad they're not calling it the Museum for tasteful achitecture.

    Reason why I thought I would post something here, is because there's going to be a holocaust gallery.

    I believe there's going to be a Ukrainian genocide as well, or it was supposed to have, again there has been some pretty controversial politics around this particular building.

    Of course, I will check the museum out and hopefully allow to take some photos and tell you folks about it, it'll be easier than some individuals travelling to otherwise a really dull city in my opinion.

    Couple of links; incase anyone is curious.

    Apologies if the links lack a certain quality, or an opinion that doesn't sit well. Doubly so if this thread isn't in a good spot.
