  • We didn't think to visit him but in the end we encourage us. The story of Otto is beautiful, everything is sobreacogedor and a very enjoyable visit. I recommend it a lot as well as make a small donation to the end.

  • I visited the Museum on the occasion of the tour "Jewish Berlin". You can learn from our neighbors how skillfully show a good story. Next to the places which commemorates the Holocaust feature House in which Otto Weidt rescued the lives of Jews by employing them in his workshop.

  • 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.
  • Nice to see. Liked the man with the big mustache
  • Interesting worthwhile place to visit.
  • Very interesting museum with an unimaginable story of bravery against the nazies.
