Very small museum but very good explained, full of documents, pictures, really heroic and historical site. Located in the hidden ''art alley'' which very little people know about it, just a few steps from the Hackersche Hof.

I'm so glad I found this museum while shopping nearby. It doesn't take particularly long to get through (though I could've spent more time than I did there), but it's so worthwhile and really emphasizes how much history runs through every area in Berlin. I...More

It's a very small museum, if you have a little bit of spare time go see it! The story it tells is impressive, empowering and very important to remember! To be honest I had a bit of an "unfortunate situation" because I was in a...More

It was an unexpected museum, behind the Hackischer Hoefe. We were very impressed by what Otto Weidt had done for the Jewish blind.

Hidden in an ally, a very small museum commemorating Otto Weidt and telling an interesting story of a brave man fighting for his Jewish workers freedom under the Nazi regime. Some light in the darkest era.

This outstanding Human Being deserves a museum as Mr. Weidt employed blind jews and saved their lives in this touching tribute to the good he did during difficult times. You can view it in an hour and it is well worth your hour.

A free small museum on the site of his brush factory, tucked away but worth finding. Few people may have heard of Otto Weidt who helped many people during the war and this museum describes how he did so. Groups of schoolchildren led by guides...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

oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

I'm afraid I will haveto disappoint you. There's no press in this small museum. But lots of other remarkable things that make a visit worthwhile.
