I went to this museum after it was recommend to me on two different walking tours and it´s really impressive. I spend more than 3 hrs and couldn´t stop reading about all the very personal life stories during the Nazi era.

This museum was an unexpected find for me, as I was visiting nearby Haus Schwartzenberg as part of a walking tour and hadn't heard of it previously. It's very interesting and moving, with lots of information which is well presented.

Came across this small museum which tells the story of a German brush factory owner who tried to save his blind Jewish employees from the Nazis. The personal stories of the small group make this a moving experience.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

I'm afraid I will haveto disappoint you. There's no press in this small museum. But lots of other remarkable things that make a visit worthwhile.
