I had trouble finding it, as it's in an alley off the main road. However once we got there it was amazing to see what one man did to try to protect the most vulnerable Jewish people during the Shoah. He employed blind and deaf Jews and was able to convince the Third Reich officials that these brooms were integral... More

The original hiding space that is located at the end of museum was so well hidden that I didn't even notice it today. Interesting to see it still in situ. The museum itself is hard to find, it is with the Anne Frank Museum.

I had heard about Otto Weidt and what he did to save blind and deaf Jews from the gas chambers. No way would I miss the opportunity to visit the place where he saved so many people from death. We were welcomed into the museum that used to be his industry. The person in charge was well knowledgeable and shared... More

Small museum about the Otto Weidt workshop where mainly Jewish deaf & blind made brushes & brooms. Well worth the visit which only takes an hour. Not easy to find as it is situated in an alley between Starbucks & Michael Kors

This museum tells the story of Berlin's "Schindler" Amazing story of courage, compassion and love for mankind. A fascinating part of the dark history of Berlin.

Best museum in Berlin: an authentic place and an unusual narrative. Perfect! Difficult to find, but worth looking for it.

This museum is truly a gem. It describes this hero that helped a lot of blind and deaf jews from being killed by the nazis. It is difficult to find because it is inside an ally. Look for Michael Kors it is a few doors down. Well worth it, it's free and you can purchase the book for 15 euro.... More

This is a really moving museum tribute the Schindler like hero who saved the lives of countless Jews during World War II. You almost have to have someone tell you about it or you won’t find it. It’s free and not terribly well advertised. It’s tucked into a cool, street art filled alley. You won’t spend a long time in... More

This museum was truly moving. What made it extra special was having a private guide who was able to tell us the entire story behind the factory where he hid blind Jewish Germans who were at risk of being exterminated.

This museum is very small- you won't spend a long time here- but it's worth the visit. I'd never heard of Otto Weidt so to me it was great to hear about this unknown hero. The museum tells the stories of those he helped - some with happy endings and others not so fortunate. It's hidden down a lane near... More
