The german train company memorial site for the murder of the Berlin jewish citizens. It’s the actual railroad next to grunewald station. If we will not visit, weeds will cover the ramps.

This is at Grunwalde station, just a 20 minute trip on the S bahn from central Berlin but right beside the forest which is a lovely day out from the buzzy city. The Gleis 17 is where thousands of Jews were forced on trains headed...More

This memorial to 50000 Jews deported to various concentration camps is very moving. It is the site of a freight yard used for deportations. The original rails remain and the platforms have been transformed with plates highlighting dates, numbers and destination of those deported. It...More

A must visit for history buff. Came a few times and each time we come, the crowd was just nice. Able to sit by the tracks in silence.

The trip here is worth it. It’s a small but thought provoking place. In the summer there are several Biergarten around and a nice park to walk in as well.

I went in the early afternoon, when the temperature was dropping already and the bright winter day was fading. The way to the platform is well sign-posted. No trains arrive or depart from this platform, but otherwise the railway station goes about its business. Plaques...More
