found this little place after visiting the Anne Frank Zentrum, it's in the same alleyway. deserves a visit, discreet memorial about the German citizens who , despite the dangers, helped hide their Jewish friends. Never heard of this place before, not in my guide book,...More
It was difficult to see relics of so many murdered peoples, but wonderful to see what others did to try and protect them. The touch screen computers at the beginning do a great job of weaving together the stories. The free standing computers at the...More
Nice museum which tells an important story. Not all Germans were Nazis in WW2, contrary to popular belief. Many tried to help potential holocaust victims escape their fate by conspiring in silence, right under the nose of German authorities.
Visiting this museum will change your...More
It is a very simple memorial telling the stories of 'the silent heroes' who risked their lives helping Jews going underground during WWII.
If you are interested in the holocaust history, this is definitely worth a visit.
This little museum is in the same small alleyway that the Otto Weidt Museum is located. It is a great way to learn about those who helped hide the Jews during WWII - at great difficulty and expense of their own safety.
Excellent and so...More

A great little museum to learn more about those German's who were 'silent heroes' risking everything to look after and hide the persecuted Jews during WW2. Upstairs was the best part for me. Several pillars each with a story to tell via audio, artefacts and...More
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
