It can happen again and again, hard to believe we cannot learn? Also the Lutheran alignment and excuse as justice.

This good photographic display with models and a sizeable remnant of the Berlin Wall is well worth a visit to get a perspective of what the city and its citizens endured through the 20th century.

Spent a couple of hours here and could easily have spent more as there is so much to read and take in. It is a heavy subject but handled very well and is worth taking the time to visit and reflect

Free and really informative, definitely one of the best museums in Berlin for me, although this is more like a picture book rather than things if you like that kind

We visited and took our time walking through all the photographic exhibits. This museum really provided a lot more thoughtful background on how the country ended up at war and the atrocities that occurred.

Very interesting place. Very thought provoking. Plenty of narratives and photos so that you can fully understand what happened.

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today

Terror was created through the rule of law? How do you keep a watchful eye on democracy?

Response from Bob F | Reviewed this property |
