We slipped into this small museum to escape for a while from the freezing cold. It turned to be a touching experience. As we got overwhelmed by the story of Otto Weidt who tried to save many blind jews from deportation by employing them in his small factory to assemble brushes, we couldn't help but see the resemblance with the...

You really relive the occupation of the Nazi regime in this building. If you know the story of Oscar Shindler and found it interesting you'll really appreciate the story of Otto Weidt and his factory in this little known museum. Highly recommended.

We went here after the positive reviews on this sight, and I have to add my voice to them. An amazing, remarkable story of human conviction and selfless risk taking for others, and a real sense of community. It also reminds you, like so many of the memorial sights concerning this era, of the inhumanity people are capable of and... More

This is a very small museum with a big story. Location was original site of workshop for vision impaired Jewish people - interesting stories. Includes area where some Jewish workers were hidden. Located in a small alley that has Fabius street art as well. If you can find it I would recommend. It's free!

I was determined to get here on our trip to Berlin, the reviews on here were all so positive and they are not wrong! The museum/exhibition was so touching and thought provoking, I must admit to having a lump in my throat and could have easily got emotional whilst there. He was an amazing man! It is a small museum... More

A highly complex and intertwined story of a German man that did unbelievable acts of heroism all during the war. the story includes a very varied set of substories that together picture the situation of Jews in Berlin during the war, the behaviour of some exceptional inhabitants and other people such as snitches, polish workers in the Auschwitz area etc......

We were led there as part of an organized tour to important Jewish sites in Berlin. This rather small museum is a very interesting place to visit, and we found the visit very touching

This small museum is another memorial that you find just wondering around the city of Berlin between graffiti, pubs and tourist attraction. I like the way the Berliners choose not to hide the history. A free of charge museum in a nice small avenue worth coming not just for this museum.

When the previous reviews said they nearly missed it they weren't lying, it's hidden!! So here are specific directions. Just past the department store on the corner start looking for a panhandle. There are no signs only a bronze plaque on the floor to the entrance of the alley. The alley looks really cool with all the art work. Museum... More
