The monument is very powerful, despite its overall simplicity. Would suggest to visit with a guide, as you can understand much better the exact history and the small details around the memorial.

Very easy to find. Very easy to visit. But will stay with you for a long time......Grünewald S-7 train station, just follow the signs. You can buy flowers to bring, right by the station.

Next to the normal train "Gleis", you can find the Gleis 17. You will see pro day, the number of "Juden" which have been sent to the camp.. It is really impressive

A must for every man and woman. A most important memorial. Very powerful. Pay attention to the written information on the railways blocks. 3 other memorials near by. Don't miss them. Best to take a guided tour.
