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

We had finished our tour of Germany and come back to the hotel in Spandau for our flight out the next morning. With a few hours of daylight left I pulled out trusty guidebook and found something open in the EVENING for us to go see. It took a while to get there from our location, with work being done...

My friend and I stumbled across this place by accident, but I'm really glad that we did. I have studied a lot of history of this time period but had never heard the amazing story of Otto Weidt, and how he so courageously and selflessly helped so many deaf and blind Jews during that terrible time. It is a small... More

I made a last minute decision to go into this museum and am so glad that I did. Otto Weidt set up a workshop for blind and/or deaf people and employed mainly Jews. I went because it seemed a place likely to have been targeted by nazis to capture people for death camps. In the first rooms there are photographs... More

This museum will supply you with yet another dimension of the resistance against the nazi regime. It is an important reminder of the fact that many Germans bravely opposed the system. The history of Otto Weidt's workshop for the blind is touching and will almost certaintly make an impression. You will not regret visiting this.
