This is one of the many symbolical `laces in Berlin. It appeared too simple for me. It is in a centrical and touristic area. It is surrounded by very interesting monuments

We would have trudged on by this handsome little building, if our guide had not taken us to it. Very moving, and easily missed. The interior space and the Kollwitz sculpture are very very beautiful. Moving beyond words.

Look for the bullet holes patched up, rake a minute inside and contemplate those victims of war... Real treasure of a space, especially to think the meaning that's been taken on by generation after generation.

I've seen pictures of the Kollwitz sculpture dozens of times, but I never knew how large it was... Or how much of an impact it could make on me as it is the lone inhabitant of a building rich with history. Don't just walk past this small(ish), unassuming building. Be deliberate with your mission to visit and to contemplate the purpose behind it.

This building has so much history. The statue in the centre is very humbling and makes one think about what has happened in the past.
