  • It is a little known museum dedicated to this character who helped Jews, using them in a brush factory. Those objects that contains you make feel the suffering and at the same time hope of their workers.

  • Small exhibition to commemorate the story of this man who strove to save his employees from deportation. Touching to see the room, access to which was covered by a closet that saved, unfortunately only temporarily, a family. Actually there is not much to see but worth a visit to remember the human performed in the middle of so many atrocities. geste Free entrance

  • 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.
