I'm glad we visited this small museum. It gave a detailed insight into Otto Weidt and his determination to protect vulnerable individuals. It's remarkable to see the bravery and selflessness that took place under such difficult circumstances. Well worth a visit especially as it is...More

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...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.

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 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...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...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.
