Our hotel was just across the road from this statue situated outside Friedrichstrasse station so passed it many times. It is a lovely well cast monument and it is easy to guess what it stands for. Very moving.

At Friedrichstrasse train station they have a memorial for the kinder transport and for the kids who were sent to the camps. I know a woman who was sent by her parents with her sister and that's how they were saved

Just outside the Friedrichstrasse S-bahn station, you see this memorial with children facing two directions---one toward a new life in a new country, frightening as that must have been, and the other toward senselesss death at the hands of murderers with an insane ideology and...More

I am staying one night and leaving my car for another 7 days. I have prepaid parking reservations for the entire time on the Marriott Campus. Do I have to pay any additional parking fee?
