Last remaining stretch of the infamous wall on the site of the SS and Gestapo HQ. Extremely informative boards detailing some of the horrors of the Third Reich which you should read so this never happens again.

To grapple with presenting to the public such a profoundly painful period of human history is not an easy task. Distressing as it is, ToT does its job well.
