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... More

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.

If you're around the Hackesche Höfe, pop into this nice little museum inside a lovely little courtyard covered with street art. Otto Weidt is one of the lessor known heroes of WWII and an inspiration - I was surprisingly moved by his story and by the museum. It's free, too.

I'm so glad I managed to visit this Museum on this trip to Berlin and I would urge anybody visiting here to do the same. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the photograph of the workers (I've attached my photo of it) leaves you feeling as if you've been punched by the end of the history of what happened to... More

The small, free museum is located in a small alley, worth to find and visit. The story is interesting and inspiring, yet not known to most people. Highly recommended!

Thank you TA folks for suggesting this museum. Their stories are uplifting, sad and tragic. Allow an hour or more. It is worth the time and there is art in the courtyard.
