Definitely worth a visit. Gives you a glimpse into daily life during the Nazi era and the risks some people took to help their neighbors.

This Museum is really a hidden gem with a lot of Berlin history to offer. Wouldnt go there with my children, but if you are into it, this is good.

Little pearl I've found by chance. It's a few rooms museum with the story of Otto Weidt and some of the Jews he saved (or tried to) during WWII. Well presented, in both German and English.

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.

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

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.
