  • Touching museum that share a story of individual courage in the face of evil. This museum gives a graphic understanding to historic events.  more »
  • In the face of the museum dedicated to Anne Frank, and beside that devoted to German resistance networks, I discovered how this brave businessman saved the blind Jews. Small and free, a tour would complement the quick tour of the premises.

  • Really well done. If you would like to learn a little more about individuals in the resistance and Jewish families in Berlin, the visit very worthwhile. It's free, you can donate at the end. The staff is very nice and helpful. An ernüchterne experience.

  • A very interesting place with a sad story. Otto Weidts bravery during WWII is inspiring! I always take my tourists there.
  • One of the interesting places to go in Berlin. A little hard to find.
  • A small but thought provoking museum. Found in a small alley from the main Street, this lets you see another side to the persecution of German Jews.
  • Free, very small, but nice. It tells a very important story. Unfortunately I don't think the way the exhibition is presented lives up to its potential, especially on the technology/interaction side.
  • This is a quiet museum, no glitzy displays or computer interaction but it's all the better for that. This was a workshop in which blind Jewish people made brushes and the owner did his best to try and save as many of them as possible from the Nazi camps. It's understated but shows the humanity of the owner and the tribulations of the workers. The area around it is worth visiting as well.
