History Museum Historic Site
The site of the infamous Nazi Wannsee Conference, Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz was reopened as a Holocaust museum in 1992, after having first served as a school. Historian Joseph Wulf recommended that the site be converted into a Holocaust museum and memorial in 1965, but the German government claimed there was a lack of funding. Today, the permanent exhibits of photographs, documents planning the Holocaust, texts, and films remind visitors of the immense tragedy and explain how it happened.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.

  • This is an important memorial and almost unbiased testimony for human cruelness and terror. What people at any given moment of time may consider to be rational despite humatariam​ and good will principles, can't be so and always proofs itself wrong afterwards.
  • Where the Nazi regime officially made The Final Solution government policy. All the documents and minutes of the meeting are on display, along with illustrations of the bureaucratic structures. Serves to remind how easy for people and institutions in positions of the highest responsibility for others can implement and implicate themselves out of their own choice in the most inhuman courses imaginable to humanity. Admission is free, and the picturesque villa and the scenic surroundings of Lake Wannsee contrast greatly against the crime that was perpetrated there. The conference took place on January 20th 1942; I visited the House of the Wannsee Conference exactly 75 years to the day.
  • An excellent place to learn about the Holocaust as it was the venue of discussions of the logistics of the Final Solution. The tour guides are incredibly helpful - most are PhD students and so are incredibly knowledgeable on the subject.
  • Very important museum , but I think it would be more interesting to have a simulation of the table and participating figures (can be with wax models) , for a good visualization.
  • Nice well maintained love it.
